Company reviews
"Poor management and toxic work environment"
Former EmployeeLaboratory Assistant
The company overworks its employees which causes excessive burn out with high employee turn over rates. There is poor management with most supervisors and lab managers sitting behind their desks or in daily meetings to really have a handle on their department. The job culture is a facade of employee well-being and is in actuality a toxic work environment that feeds on shift division, hostility and bullying. I would not recommend this company to anybody who values their mental health and work-life balance.

"Fulfilling job, but experiences may vary greatly"
Current EmployeeAnalyst
The company has a solid environment overall, but within each department there are self contained ecosystems. The supervisor you get will determine whether you have career advancement or just get micromanaged. If you are trying to build experience, then this is a perfect environment, however it may not be what you want long term.

"Great place to start in a lab setting"
Current EmployeeSpecimen Processor
I started this job with absolutely no lab experience and have learned so much within my time there. I am constantly learning new things. You need to be able to work in a fast placed environment and be able to grasp things quickly. Pay could be better but for it being something starting out, it’s good!

"Not the worst but"
Former EmployeeScientist
Lots of micromanagement and no direct room for professional growth. Pay and benefits weren't terrible but overall left a lot to be desired. Positive work was never acknowledged and any mistake was constantly talked about.
