Good benefits, but in some positions there is not enough opportunity for advancement

Good benefits, but in some positions there is not enough opportunity for advancement. It is a large company so the experience one might have working for ARUP depends largely upon the department you are in.

Not my cup of tea, If you enjoy doing the same thing day in and day out this place is for you. Not very challenging intellectually. You sit a lot and it's a great job for someone who doesn't take their health seriously.

This place is basically another high school with all the drama. You might as well be one to love the drama or leave within two years like the majority does already. Not only that, they have little groups that are willing to talk about other peoples work other then themselves

The work environment is amazing! The customer care is excellent! The company takes great care of the employees. The company is amazing about considering the needs of the employees and also the needs of the clients that they serve.

Only good about this company is that everyone who works there is very nice, friendly, a free family clinic for their employee. Some of their leads need some improvement on how to treat their employee, so far I am doing fine with them but I had seen how they treat others poorly, favoritism or judge too soon. They should check and confirmed before they say anything. They need to pay more.
benefits, free clinic, friendly co-workers
low pay, leads treat their employee poorly, company policies

ARUP is one of the best companies I've had the privilege to work at. Great people, good training, invests in employees, opportunity for advancement, competitive wages and benefits, on-site clinic and child-care, and great location.

good shifts (7-on/off, 4-10's, 5-8s, etc), good benefits, variety of fields/specialties to work in, average pay, workplace culture is very conservative; management style is top-down, strong association with University of Utah and education of University MLS students
Client Service Agent (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 15, 2017
A typical day involves answering phone calls about patient tests. Calls can come from health professionals, clients, labs, IT and other co-workers. Your job involves providing accurate and complete information a timely manner.
Rewarding, work-from-home, medical benefits, pension plan

good experience but stressful, job secure and career advancement with great benefits but a lot of challenges. they put everyone in a position where you have to compete with others, and it makes it really stressful.
Technologist (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 2, 2017
Worst company I have ever worked for. Constantly rotating and turnover of staff and management. No consistency or stability from one year to the next what is expected of you or what the rules are. Safety is a knee-jerk over the top reaction. Employee engagement and feedback is a paper exercise. Quality assurance of anything happening in the reasearch and technical levels is also a paper exercise to show inspectors and regulatory agencies. Pay is actually not bad, but better pay, benefits, and work-life balance can be found at nearby biotech companies, which is where most people go that leave.
Pay, bonuses, some people
Managment vision and consistency, hours, work-life balance

Healthcare is absolutely horrible. To get a half decent premium rate you have to subject to annual exams, but the coverage is horrible. Anywhere outside their family clinic is going to cost you up to your yearly deductible, and the waitlist to be seen at the clinic is ridiculous. You get what you pay for. There is a ton of turnover because of poor management and terrible hours and expectations. Many of the labs I have seen are always in a crisis mode to hire vacant positions. Security at the company is an absolute farse. The parking is not well monitored, people have breakins and even have catalytic converters stolen off their vehicles while at work. Last nights shooting in the parking lot really showed that the company does not know how to handle an emergency situation. They announced there was an emergency once, but then never gave any updates to employees to ease any fears until it was all over about 50 minutes later. They could have let the employees know when the situation was safety and contained (which was immediately), but instead they had some employees scared for their lives for 50 minutes. Some employees didn't even care and were still roaming the halls. I fear for my safety in the hands of their security, and safety in the labs during normal days is a joke also. Incompetence is rewarded. After lasts nights handling of the security, which was the last straw for me, there will be another vacant position.
jobs are always available.
high turnover, lack of corporate culture, fragmented and unclear leadership.
Technologist (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 14, 2016
Individual lab culture and communication will have a lot to do with your hapiness at this company, and how well that department can protect you from the overall poor corporate culture. The company wears mottos on its sleeve like 'work-life balance', 'quality', and 'safety', they don't practice these concepts with any true effort or collaboration with the individual laboratories. As much as they say that they don't retaliate for pointing out problems, they do. So most employees will not point out issues regarding safety to employees or the patients they are testing. There are really good people that work here, management needs to focus on controlling all departments better and equitably. There has definitely been a lack of focus and communication with the majority of workers in the company which shouldn't be surprising for a company that has had 3 CEOs in less than 3 years, and they've also turned over many of their executive management in the same time. Hopefully, as they weed out the 30 year old managment team, they will be more in line with today's industries.
