Cons: Ineffective management, incompetent employees
Although there were aspects about this job I enjoyed, I would have to say that management was not very good at Labcorp. Managers had certain employees as their "favorites" and these employees got away with a lot of things that others were disciplined for. There were some employees that blatantly violated company policies and were never disciplined or terminated. One employee threw away a patient's processed cytology slide/specimen because it broke in the converslipper. Instead of processing and remaking the slide, she just threw it away in the sharps container. This patient may have had a serious medical condition, but because this employee threw away the specimen and failed to make another one, the patient didn't get their results and had to make another appointment with their healthcare provider and submit another sample for processing. This costs money and time for the patient and also for the healthcare provider. This employee was never disciplined or terminated. And this employee not only committed this same violation once, but twice! The employee is still employed with Labcorp and does not do her job half of the time she is there. Therefore, I cannot give this company a good review. They look the other way on some employees, and then terminate other employees who commit a minor infraction (or if it is someone they dislike).
