Not a positive culture
Regional Account Manager (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaMay 17, 2018
The CEO is a previous scientist. The COO and Vice President of sales are buddies that and have moved around more then most people breathe air. The culture is very bad, and management is green behind the ears. You do not want to sell here. Hopefully Konica Minolta can reel things in, because company will be bankrupt within 2yrs if not. Average comp plan, new comp structure that is not achievable to make commission payouts. It's designed that way. More layoffs most likely to come within 12 months.
Pros
Quality product portfolio
Cons
Job stability, management, dysfuctional environment

Authorization Specialist (Former Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CAApril 21, 2018
While working at Ambry, I've met nice co-workers. The work environment is fast paced, but yet friendly, I was able to get along with everyone. The company was very accommodating to flexible hours.
Pros
Free lunches and coffees
Cons
poor management, the manager and supervisors have favoritism.

Ambry has changed
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CAApril 17, 2018
Used to be an amazing place to work. Great people, atmosphere and company culture. However, there has been a strong corporate shift-- and for the worse.

Upper level leadership is weak, short-sighted, and disconnected from the employees. Moral is low, and trust is gone between employees and leadership.

HR is no where to be found, and is not helpful in anyway to employees. They cater to the Steering committee and all they try to do is avoid lawsuits.
Pros
Benefits and pay are good to average for the marketplace
Cons
Leadership, Company Culture, Hr, Legal Counsel, Konica, etc.

Good entry into genetics. Little job security
SPECIALTY RETAIL PERSCRIPTION SALES (Former Employee) –  PNWFebruary 22, 2018
This is a good company overall, although short lived for me.
Key accounts were not accessible and insurance coverage and billing issues from prior year need to be corrected.
Products are solid and management was fair.
No evaluations done to address progress.
Let go to reorganization.
Pros
Products
Cons
Management makes abrupt decisions and policies change weekly.

Oncology Account Manager (Former Employee) –  New JerseyFebruary 13, 2018
There was a time at Ambry when business was growing, and the company culture was second-to-none. They have gone corporate now, and this culture is deteriorating.

data entry (Current Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CADecember 14, 2017
The company started as a great, fun place to work, but slowly degenerated due to politics, poor management, terrible/non-existent communication, and back-stabbing.

CLS II (Former Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CANovember 16, 2017
Great place to get trained and learn about molecular techniques.
Horrible place to work if you already have experience and knowledge of other company's management and training processes. Horrible place if you already have extensive experience in the lab.You will be ignored and resented. Horrible place if you are older, have older children and don't want to party and socialize 24/7.
Pros
State of the art equipment, good benefits
Cons
Everything else

I really enjoyed working for Ambry Genetics, but was part of a massive layoff. I enjoyed my co-workers, and the CEO made sure all the employees were very well taken care of.

Medical Records Clerk II (Former Employee) –  Aliso Viejo, CAMay 23, 2017
Ambry used to be a fun company to work for. Employees were motivated to keep the dream alive but with the massive layoff the only thing they are dreaming about is whether or not they will have a job in the morning.
