Pros: none that i can see
Cons: morale, pay, disorganized, no room for advancement...
Working for this company will guarantee you this: long hours, money coming OUT of your own pocket, no benefits, low morale, and poor management. I can not speak for the corporate location in Burbank, but I can tell you that working for their Las Vegas office was a nightmare.
I'll start with the awful management staff. I have never encountered more – more... poorly organized management in all my life. A lab should not be run this way or by such unorganized people. They had no idea how to schedule, how to run a lab or what separations of duties means. Want a day off? Forget about it! They want you to work seven days a week with no over time. (I'm serious! That is what they asked.)
The compensation was hardly worth coming to work at all. The amount of money spent driving my own car and the insulting amount of pay made this job near impossible to stomach. In the end, the amount of money I spent on gas and wear on my car made my pay check a wash. I made barely enough money to keep gas in my tank. I was using my own car for this company with little to no compensation and even less appreciation.
Being an employee for this company keeps your morale at an all time low. I had not met one person who worked there that had one good thing to say about it. Honestly, I'm surprised at even mediocre reviews of this location. I met a few cool people working there but most people there were either on their way out or there because they couldn't make it anywhere else. Also, don't expect raises or reviews.
Having worked in other labs before, I seriously question their standards, ethics and abilities. Some practices that they have have to be illegal or at least sub-par.
The moral is: if you are in desperate need of a job, work for Diagnostic Labs. At least you'd have a job. However, if you'd like to get paid for the work you do and not have impossible surprises everyday, keep looking. It'll be worth it in the end. – less
