  • Right now we're short staffed. My group alone is down almost forty percent from a year ago, and we're one of those better off in the department. I understand training people takes, at best, a few months and at worst over two years, but constant mandatory overtime will only continue to frustrate the good people--those with experience and certification-- into following our former coworkers to other companies or even industries. We also have set guidelines on how long we allow for someone to get through their training, but because the higher ups make it so hard to even get a position opened to post for a chance at hiring someone, no one has actually been disciplined for not passing their training in that time. That REALLY frustrates those trying to prode them through when they don't want to be passed enough to start maintaining a record of their work--which is required for promotion, but also means they'd have to buckle down and improve. Some donucare to, and not using the guidelines set out to get rid of deadweight employees leaves everyone else irked and having to work harder, and longer, plus the overtime. I love my job but we really need to hire people, give them the guidelines and stick to them before more of our good new employees get so disheartened by seeing someone who has worked the same length of time without progressing as they should have being not only kept but given a yearly raise that they leave, feeling there isn't any appreciation for them doing their job well.

What I like about the company

There are some situations in which I find something in a sample that could be literally and urgently life-threatening for the patient. Getting that information to the directors, and from them to the doctor, in time to save a life always gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Same goes for finding a subtle abnormality in low levels, as it means treatment can be tailored to the patient's specific needs. Seeing past history for those patients, seeing that they've gone into remission because of the treatment they recieved after abnormalities were found, makes it worth dealing with the silly little bits that comes from working at any large organization.

What I dislike about the company

I do wish that when we got a new CEO/'higher up' they wouldn't start things just to be doing something new. We've had several initiatives that don't improve patient care, quality, and actually(as we feel we're wasting our time on a remote stranger's whim) damages moral when they ask us for overtime because we were stuck doing something for their benefit and our turn around time suffered as a result.[DASHBOARD for anyone who works there]

My dept. suck but the entire LabCorp did celebrate us with meals on LabCorp but tell women they are fat however good incentive not great thorough could do better.

Office / Work Environment

Depending if you have an irritating coworker who just does not know how to do there work but they have a Master's degree.

Environmental Friendliness

It depends or you political or not. Or just racist , I do not know why my beautifully color offends them . Maybe because of the sheer of my color??

Company Culture

There are lots of gossip going around. Management shows favorite towards some employees over others.

Support from management

Very little support from the management except criticism and yelling and backbiting.

Teamwork

In terms of teamwork, there is not much help employees offer to one another. You will find that some employees have nothing to do while others have million things to do.

Freedom to work independently

There's some degree of freedom at the work but it will do you no good when you are exhausted and tired. The job will drain you physically and emotionally.

Internal Communication

They will talk behind your back to everyone in the meetings about your mistakes.

Gender Equality

The site I worked at favored women more than men tbh.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Most of the people that worked there were younger people who just finished school and were looking for some experience.

Career Development

I didn't see myself growing and becoming some type of management. They show favorism to some employees over others based on how they perceive you

Overall compensation for your work

The one positive thing is that the compensation was probably one of the higher end for job.

Office / Work Environment

Very hostile and not friendly to work.

Environmental Friendliness

The environment is clean but there was a lot of lights and it bothered my eyes.

Work-Life Balance

This is probably the area where it sucked the most to be at the company. You will basically work 12 hours for five or six days. No life outside of work.

Challenging Work

No help is offered to the employees and the only time they'll talk to you is when they wanna yell at you.

Inclusive / Diverse

There are diverse people working there

Suggestions for improvement

  • The worst company I've worked for.

What I like about the company

The only thing I enjoyed was the pay but that's nothing if the work environment is draining.

What I dislike about the company

Everything. Management being the biggest reason I left. They just haye people and they don't know how to work with them. There's a lot of gossip going around like they high school teenage girls.
