Support from management

Management is often busy with a myriad of other issues does not always take into account effects and opinions of various employees.

Teamwork

While there are 'specialties' within the department, everyone works with a common goal. Colleagues however do not interact in a positive or professional manner.

Freedom to work independently

After training, you are expected to be self-sufficient and ask questions only when necessary.

Internal Communication

Communication between upper and lower levels is very poor, management often does not communicate with employees about changes within the department.

Gender Equality

While there is a distinct female majority, there is definitely equal opportunity for both genders regarding career paths and payment.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Experience is needed for entry, but senior colleagues are often leads in their specialties.

Career Development

There is a solid career track within the lab and the lab will allow educational opportunities to be taken.

Office / Work Environment

Classical laboratory setup - everything you need is provided.

Environmental Friendliness

Few recycling bin are available, large amount of biohazardous waste is created from the department.

Work-Life Balance

There is a large amount of emphasis on providing for family time. While some weekends or overtime are mandatory, there is ample approval for needed time off / sick leave.

Job Security

Genetics is always growing and there will always be jobs being created with new ways to analyze and diagnose.

Challenging Work

Since there is no direct patient contact, it is easy to forget how you affect people outside of the lab. When you realize it, the work is very satisfying. The work is not necessarily difficult.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diverse opinions are sometimes frowned upon, especially when they include ways to improve laboratory processes. For the most part, it follows the thought of, "If it works, don't change it."

Suggestions for improvement

  • Some locations consistently poll in for department satisfaction as very low. Those locations may need to be visited by HR and surveyed anonymously with check-ups.

What I like about the company

Multiple benefits, fantastic availability for tuition reimbursement.

What I dislike about the company

Pay is usually low for entry level positions and since the average retention of employees is 13 years, there are not always open positions available to move up.
