    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy the flexibility and freedom of being a PRN employee here.

    Cons

    Their IT tools are kind of fragmented right now, I wish they would integrate all of them in one streamlined application.

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much perks. Benefits are OK but nothing to die over.

    Cons

    Stressful job environment. Employees concerns are really not a priority.

    Advice to Management

    See to employees that really care.

    I worked at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company has very employee-centric policies and generally a caring culture. Leadership has a clear vision of where they are taking the organization and have a focus on reducing waste and errors to produce accurate results for patients over 99.9% of the time. Employees have multiple avenues to be heard by leaders and the organization has multiple diversity and inclusion groups and participates in numerous charity organizations.

    Cons

    Every process is highly engineered, which is great for patients and providers, but the exacting standards and tight controls may be difficult for some to adapt to. Salaries are average for the industry, but bonus payments have been below average as the company seeks to control expenses to meet Wall Street expectations. Limited opportunities for advancement in "corporate functions" roles unless you're willing to relocate or live/work in Madison, NJ.

    Advice to Management

    While the company has great policies and programs for employees, sometimes this gets lost as there is a perception that shareholders come first. Shift the focus to driving employee engagement and let the employees (continue to) produce shareholder value.

    I have been working at Quest Diagnostics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been working at Quest Diagnostics for the past 2 years and thus far my experience has been nothing but positive. My department colleagues are willing to assist me in finishing up tasks if I get behind sometimes.

    The Vacation time is a plus as well as the benefits package.

    Cons

    The workload doesn't match the salary. There is a lot asked of you on a daily basis. The work always increases but the pay doesn't increase as much to match the workload increase.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees more with pay increases for increased workloads.
