Pros: free lab testing and the people
Cons: communication and recognition
Overall, LabCorp is a good company for which to work. There are advancement opportunities, although you may need to be willing to relocate in some instances. The salary and benefits are above par with most employers this size when everything is taken in to consideration.
As with any company the size of LabCorp, effective and timely communication is a struggle. We have so many moving parts, it is difficult to insure all parties are informed. In many cases, new procedures or doctrines are enacted without proper communication. This does cause tension and issues between the various departments. There is no magic bullet to fix this as there really is no way to know who is truly going to be affected by a change until it is made.
If you are someone who thrives on recognition, you may struggle with LabCorp. While they do have various programs to incentivize performance, there is very little individual recognition. There are 2 major awards yearly, Laboratorian of the Year and the Chairman's Award. These are both wonderful programs and very deserving people have won in years past. However, from an every day perspective, the words "Thank You," and "Good Job" are not spoken nearly enough.
There are wonderful people who work for the company. We have many dedicated and hard working individuals that keep this company moving. If there is one aspect of this company that really stands out, it is the people. Yes, we are a top notch laboratory, but the people are what makes that statement true.
