    I have been working at TriCore Reference Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, pleasant coworkers, and the company is motivated and offers a vision to meet future challenges.

    Cons

    Poor scientific leadership in some departments, micromanagement, unwillingness to listen to concerns of technical staff. Do as I say, not as I do, attitude by some.

    Advice to Management

    Hold everyone one accountable, not just the technical staff performing the key day to day operations. Examine why certain departments have high turnover rates and either offer management coaching or downgrade individuals if necessary. Encourage leadership to listen to the staff.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck that comes every two weeks. People in the labs are pretty nice if they are happy.

    Cons

    High turn over, the people that are really happy are the supervisors and managers... the lower ranks not so much.

    Pros

    You can move up in the company, if you want to.

    Cons

    Staff can get management fired by ganging up on them, and upper management does not back their management staff up.

    Advice to Management

    You need to give fair chances to your management and not only believe what the staff say

    Pros

    CEO makes you feel part of something bigger than yourself. Like a mascot that pumps you up.

    Cons

    HR makes the calls. You soon realize your working hard for nothing and find it very difficult to be promoted or move up. Language in paperwork makes it very easy for any supervisor or manager or director to hold you down. Lots of favoritism and bad managers who get all the perks while the majority do the hard work.

    I have been working at TriCore Reference Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, great team and a good company culture. This employer does seem to care about employees. No job is perfect, but I've seen a lot worse. They give adequate breaks, for a fast paced job. No one (at least in my department) is breathing down your neck but you do have to get your work done quickly.. Employees are treated with some basic respect by most management and high level employees. Doctors do tend to talk down to you on occasion but that's to be expected. The work can be very fast paced and demands a high level of accuracy, while mistakes are addressed they are usually addressed in such a way as to fix the problem, not just berate and belittle employees. That is a refreshing change from most employers. The company also does a lot of little things to show appreciation for employees.

    Cons

    Parking is bad. Work space is extremely limited. Don't be surprised if you share a desk with multiple people or if your desk is used to store extra equipment. People will move your stuff all the time. Theft is also another issue. I've had three items stolen this year. The pay is low for the work that is expected.

    Advice to Management

    I wish management would review their pay grades against the work that is actually being performed and expectations of the position.

    stick with it

    Pros

    Pay was reasonable for the work.

    Cons

    Inconsistency with supervisors in certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure no relatives are working in the same departments. Leads to unfair treatment on unrelated parties.
