    Pros

    Good benefits, stock options, and 401k matching. There are some long term employees in the lab with a lot of valuable experience and knowledge. Phlebotomy supplies are well stocked.

This is half of what is truly needed (they have other duties on top of drawing!) and causes the nurses and doctors to become angry with the lab, which increases already sky high stress levels....
