Pros: love my job! and my career and what i do!
Cons: not everyone is still passionate about a great career choice!
Coming in and reviewing with the leaving technologist what is pending, and potential problems with specimens, patients or instruments. Getting stocked and performing QC. Getting morning workload performed and completed in a timely manner for the rounding physicians. Enjoying a cup of coffee with co-workers, catching up on their evening activities and maybe seeing a few grandbaby pictures.
Most enjoyable part of my job, is discovering a new diagnosis or learning something new from the pathologist from a hematology slide, or from the blood bank supervisor.
Hardest part, is workload with shortage of technologists.
