    Pros

    Benefits are good, nice people to work with, the hours can be flexible if the people you work with are willing to work with you

    Cons

    Upper management changes quite a bit. Very top heavy in administration, constantly cutting back on staff to save money and make budget. Forced PTO when they can't make annual budget.

    I worked at Sonora Quest Laboratories full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Not too many anymore, was great when I started

    Cons

    Frequently shoots itself in the foot. Constantly lives on the edge of failure. Top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and implement something according to a plan. Knee jerking the organization in 15 directions due to the misguided belief that a steady state should not exist never allows a single project to be implemented properly.

    I have been working at Sonora Quest Laboratories full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work alone in Dr.'s office with no supervision.

    Cons

    If you make mistakes it costs you a lot. Make one mistake a year and you will not be able to move up. Way too much critiquing your work. Low wages. No break on blood work done in the company you work for.

    Advice to Management

    If you truly value your employees, then $.10 raises or $.79 raise in almost four years does not show appreciation for my work. Making big profits off of employees also does not show that you appreciate employees. Spend a little more on your employees and your employees will better increase your profits.

    I have been working at Sonora Quest Laboratories part-time

    Pros

    It's a job that pays the bills

    Cons

    Supervisors and Managers don't treat you well and promote a high stress environment.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the Management was in touch with the people they are under and had any sort of relationship with them.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were friendly, helpful, and always willing to share their knowledge.

    Cons

    As with many companies, you can only advance so far without a degree. It's a great incentive to go back to school.

    They are great for helping further success in the company. Lots of potential for moving up in the company.

    Raises are almost non-existent. When slow they make you leave early.
