I will start with a positive in that those performing the work in the lab are among the brightest, most talented, and quality people I have known. They deserve much better leadership. Administration are bullies and it trickles down into most of management. Of course, this is not true of every manager. But good luck trying to step outside of the mold. You can tell who tried. Think Jack Torrance from The Shining.
Decisions made at the top seem to always be about penny-pinching or profiting and not about the best interest of the patients on the other end of the needle.
Don't expect your pay to be commensurate with your education or experience. Don't expect to be paid more for taking on more responsibility or covering more departments either. Shift differentials are not worth it.
Benefits are decent and you get a good amount of PTO. Good luck trying to use it, however, as the persistent understaffing is not conducive to time off. I only rate job security high because the constant turnover prevents management from being able to let anyone go. Don't expect them to look in the mirror for a solution, though. You will be blamed. You'll be blamed for a lot. No matter how much good you do, they will find the minutest of errors and harp on that.
NorDx represents the Walmartization of laboratory medicine and it is suffering from a culture created by its leadership.
