Low Pay High Stress
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Asheville, NCOctober 8, 2017
The wage is way below the standard for the work that is done. There's very little upward movement, people were in entry level positions for years. Management is constantly changing making it difficult to know if a project will ever get supported or have any follow through.
Pros
good vacation days, alright benefits
Cons
High stress for low wage.

Chemistry Laboratory Technician- Automated (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GAAugust 4, 2017
Great atmosphere to work in. Genova employs a diverse group of people, people I have met who are from all over the world.

There are always negative things in any work place environment, but for the most part I would say this is a great place to work or to gain some great laboratory experience.
Pros
flexiblity
Cons
To much conflict with policies.

Lab Assistant (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GAJuly 24, 2017
There is no room for advancement in this company. If you are from a particular department you will not be considered for moving up in the company. The only advice I can give is to gain as much experience as possible and look elsewhere for advancement.

Flexible hours but poorly managed company
Molecular Biologist (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAAugust 26, 2016
The lab has very flexible hours. Unfortunately this is the only advantage to working at Genova. Good for hiring those who have little to no experience (college grads but no experience) but the pay reflects it. Benefits too are poor. Company has 2 US locations. Atlanta location bought out and the favoritism of the NC location is heavily seen. Not much opportunity to move up. As far as the lab, most people et a couple years experience and move on.

Great people but terrible management
Lab technician II (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAAugust 22, 2016
I love the flexibility of the job and they are very great at accommodating with your schedule. The people are great but the management is terrible, the pay is unfair, and advancement take awhile. The don't recognize hierarchy and they don't really listens to the tech that does a majority of the job. Some people that work in terms of management don't do their jobs thereby making other people suffer for their lack of work. And they don't reward you with bonuses after all the hard work
Pros
Flexibility, great people
Cons
Not enough pay, terrible managment from higher uppers

Awful management
Laboratory Technologist I (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GAJune 28, 2016
Management was awful. Once Metametrix Clinical Laboratory was acquired by Genova Diagnostics many managers were fired for scandalous reasons. Bad work environment.

Clinical Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAMay 10, 2016
It is a good place to start out for your first lab job. Gain as much knowledge as possible while you are here. There are fun things to look forward to, such a lab week in May every year.

kind of a relaxed environment - good for new grads
lab technician (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GANovember 4, 2015
Shift hours were flexible but the pay is not great. You can make a little bit of overtime to make ends meet. Management has poor leadership skills - poor communication skills both written and oral. Training is lousy, It is like they put anybody in charge with college degree. Management then would hire family and friends and give them the more favorable positions. My Ex- boss come to work at 10 am in the morning, take an hour lunch from 12-1 come back and take two 15 minute breaks and then leave at 5- that is only a total of 27.5 hours a week.
Most of the Co-workers were OK but you had to be careful because you had some that would stab you in the back.

A typical day include processing stool samples into the computer, making labels for vials and making big samples into small samples by pouring them off. Work was really easy but boring. You are allowed to listen to music while you work so that help pass the time.

Hopefully with the new CEO things will change for the better. Sometimes the customers's sample would get lose or mislabeled so maybe he at least fix this part of the company
Pros
Flexible hours, work is easy
Cons
Very low tuition assistance 500 a semester, poor training regiments, managers with weak leaderships skills, poor pay

Good job for recent graduates only!
Tech (Former Employee) –  AtlSeptember 19, 2015
Management sucks at this place! Pay sucks compared to the amount of work they expect from you. Some supervisors don't know what they are doing, what's going on in the lab, etc and still find time to have a bad attitude. It's stressful and so not worth it. Only good for recent graduates to gain experience.
Pros
Flexibility
Cons
Pay, a lot of things are swept under the rug, inexperienced supervisors

Lab Support Services Assistant Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Asheville, NCJuly 1, 2015
I love working at Genova. All employees are taken care of and kept up do date on any and all structural developments. All employees are encouraged to engage with and help develop process improvements. This is not a top down kind of place. All employees on all levels are valued along with their input in all matters.
Pros
Great people, transparency from management.

Pros
Excellent people, opportunity to cross train and advance, high technology
