Best company I have ever worked for.
Collection Technician (Former Employee), Nashville, TNOctober 16, 2014
Aegis Sciences Corporation was one of the most wonderful companies I have ever worked for. They truly care for their employees and their families. On a typical day I was greeted with smile. The management team was always more than willing to help you with any questions or situations. I learned may new skills working as a Collection Technician as it – more... was a job that I had no prior training. They paid for all of my training and helped me to the absolute best of their ability. I would recommend working for Aegis to anyone who wants to advance in the drug testing field. – less

Physical Security Program Administrator (Former Employee), Nashville, TNSeptember 19, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: ceo is extremely political and quick to fire
The CEO and founder is as political as his Congress Woman wife. However, everyone works on pins and needles all the time. Management is well known for patting you on the back one day and letting you go the next. Upper level management is not required to follow guidelines enforced on others. If your looking for great pay, benefits, and constant fear – more... of losing it all this is the job for you. – less

Ageis is OK, the Doctors office was nuts.

Doctors are not the well grounded people I thought they were.

Aegis Sciences Corp is an amazing company to work for
Collection Technician (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 3, 2014
Aegis Sciences Corporation is an amazing company to work for. I had the pleasure to provide adequate results to the physician regarding the patients drug compliance. Testing patients gave the physician the right to know if the patient was taking medications are prescribed and would also determine any elicit drugs in their system.

if you like to work and nothing else this is place for you
Forensic Special Chemist (Current Employee), Nashville, TNJune 11, 2013
Pros: sometimes you get a quartly bonus
Cons: everything about this place
Management only promotes their friends, you work weekends, holidays and 12 hour shifts. No family time. Pay is not suited for the degree requirements and job requirements, constantly lowering the start pay. The management targets people they do not personally like and will make up write ups. Management has no problem getting attitudes with you in front – more... of colleagues. Management has no idea how to run the lab. Do not use the open door policy because you will become a target. Will fire you for any reason. They like sheep, so if you can work and not open your mouth then you will be fine working here. Working here drains your soul every time you step into the lab. Questionable practices in the lab. I would not trust my sample to be tested at this place. I hear the office section is good, the lab portion is not. Every person in the lab is looking for a new job, no one is happy. If they can make a new rule to make your life harder they will. The turn over is ridiculous, a person who has been here a year is considered old because they cannot keep people. Managers bully people who are not their friends. Some managers sleep with their employees. You get one thirty min break and two fifteens for a 12 hour shift but are constantly reminded that they only HAVE to give you one thirty min break for the 12 hour shift and if you don't need the other 15 min breaks then don't take them. They watch the videos and time you and if you are one minute late from a fifteen min break the bring you into the office and scold you and tell you that you are stealing from the company, and they write you up. The bring in people from out of state so they can work them into the ground with mandatory over time. The first month working there it seems amazing, then you will see through all the lies and began looking for a new job. RUN, RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE – less

Nice group of people
Collection Technician (Current Employee), Somerset, MAApril 16, 2013
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short breaks
Conducted Drug Screenings and communicate between client,CTC,and Aegis Management with billing and any other questions. I would follow the standard procedures for sample collections for the doctor's patient's ensuring the integrity of each “Chain of custody” and sample. Keeping records of hours and weekly samples collected. Not always a glamours job – more... due to the fact that it is urine. :) – less

Great company if you are not in the lab!
Healthcare lab (Former Employee), Nashville 515March 20, 2013
Pros: the buildings are pretty, nice holiday parties, good training program, pay is average
Cons: "production goals", gossipy, unprofessional, immature managers, so much corporate structure that you have a wedgie
The hours and shifts are great if you don't have or do not plan to ever have a life outside of the company. No holidays but you get decent vacation time that you can not use, tons of corporate politics,no respect. Lab management is unprofessional and petty and only promotes their friends or yes men. They lead by putting team members against each other – more... because they have no people skills. No real science factory work w/o union. Very high turnover and no career advancement. Constant mass exodus of good team members. If you have the chance to work in support staff departments it is a completely different world. – less

If you want a life outside of Aegis, don't work here
Forensic Mass Spec. (Current Employee), Nashville, TNNovember 19, 2012
Pros: free chic-fil-a (supporting their ban on gays), small parties, some bonuses, good pto if you get it accepted (good luck)
Cons: working every holiday, long 12 hour shifts, favoritism, no chance for advancement, only 1 weekend off a month
If you're about to be a lab employee, get ready to work 12 hours shifts, two days on, two days off. Sound Great? 5 am- 5pm or 5pm-5 am.. you work at least one day every weekend except one.If you expect to have a family life outside of Aegis...look again. You are not afforded maternity leave, you must pay for short term disability options in order to – more... have time off for pregnancy..yes they look at it as a disability. You are a very disposable employee. Be ready to play favorites and suck up as well as for childish high school backstabbing and tattling! People here are willing to say anything to move themselves up. Upper management is definitely clueless. Outside of the lab employees such as HR think it's an amazing company to work for. They should, they get to work M-F 9-5 and get paid holidays and also get paid the same bonuses you receive for working in the lab. All outsiders of the lab are referred to as those "drinking the Aegis cool-aid". There is no room for advancement unless you have an "in". Middle management are very unprofessional and often act like your "best friend" in order to get information from you and thus will turn on you instantly if they receive lies about their informants. Along with this they often speak to you like they are 14. Favoritism is running rampant in this company! This may seem like a great company on the outside, but walk away...quickly. Although there are no employees currently working in the lab who will openly admit they are unhappy there (for fear of being fired) I can guarantee that at least 50% of them are seeking employment elsewhere! – less

Watch your back with any management
former employee (Former Employee), nashville, tnOctober 1, 2012
Pros: pay is decent. that is all that i can say positive about the company
Cons: company overall is very biased, judgemental, arrogant, and much more.
the only thing positive I can say about this company is that they pay well. their personal leave benefits are good but their health care benefits are not.
don't work for a company that has an arrogant corporate attitude like they are untouchable like this company does. also, the company is heavily involved in politics because of the connection to a – more... senator.
you will have to fit into the popular cliq or you are not worth anything to the company and they do treat all their employees like you are expendable and easily replaceable.
they are quick to let you go for any reason especially if you do not fit their mold and their extremely unrealistic expectations. you cannot be human and you cannot express yourself in any way. so basically, if you are liberal, look for a better suited company than this one. you cannot be unique to whom you are and remain true. you will be judged
the company just does not give a warm fuzzy feeling in that it endorses, supports and nurtures and encourages personal growth or anything. not employee friendly.
the IT dept is treated like red-headed step children of the company and never get any honorable mentions for their support in keeping the company IT infrastructure (which is what keeps the company running along with the lab), the lab gets all the kudos! the management team (the leaders and the team leaders) breath down your back and threaten you for being human and they hover. the certainly watch over your shoulder. you are treated like kids and they do not trust.
also, definitely watch your back in the IT dept. very gender biased too it seems in that dept. – less

Very easy work
Collect Technician (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDApril 9, 2012
Pros: no manager looking over your shoulder, holidays off
Cons: very slow work environments
Job is very self explanatory. Supervisors are understanding and easy to talk to. Clocking in and out and changing information for HR is at the touch of your own hands.
