Sentara Microbiology: Lab "culture" at its best
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Norfolk, VA – January 26, 2017
I'm here to tell you that the microbiology department at SNGH Reference Lab is a fantastic place to work. The management is being changed, and there are a few new direct supervisors who have helped to thin out the workload, so it's a little less chaotic when it comes to administrative things. I will say that the work can be overwhelming, and often times, the entire staff feels like they are doing the job of five techs. It is stressful, it's hard, and it's not rewarding, but that's the nature of a career in laboratory medicine. Benefits are pretty stellar, but slightly expensive for it being a healthcare organization.
pay is low compared to national average
