What I like about the company

No matter what your job title is everyone gets treated the same. The higher ups like the ceo Vice President etc are very down to earth and greet their employees with respect and honor

What I dislike about the company

The only thing is the parking decks are expensive to park in

Suggestions for improvement

  • More forewarning about construction occurring within and around the hospital grounds. More communication between shifts (day, evening, night). More direct interaction between other fields in the hospital, to encourage understanding of their role in our work.

What I like about the company

The hiring experience was quick and the lab manager very prompt at responding to me. The location is excellent, right in the city, and is easy walking distance from most areas in the city itself. All the co-workers on my shift are very friendly and helpful, and always assist when possible. Management is kind and knowledgeable about the workings of the laboratory. The benefits are absolutely incredible, with a healthcare plan, dental, vision and other options for a very reasonable deduction straight from the paycheck.

What I dislike about the company

There are some communication issues within my particular department that seem to be an on going issue. Also, the pay for my particular field is substantially lower then the national average. There is a large growth plan currently in effect that will grow the company immensely over the next ~7 years, but is causing cuts financially across the hospital. There is ALWAYS construction going on, though this may just be a byproduct of the hospital being so urban.
