Lack of management and cohesion. Poor communication and understaffed teams.
Lab Technician (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – August 13, 2018
The company has been going downhill since 2016 for several structural reasons. New management, completely rotating personnel that doesn't last a whole year, nobody wants to stay in a company that doesn't provide stability and expect too much for a low pay of under $18 an hour for professionals.
There is no organization, no security, and no communication. Often people leave for being charged with responsibilities that belong to superiors, while working over 60 hours a week. Poor business practices and no cohesion.

QC Microbiology Analyst (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – May 19, 2018
The typical day can range from extremely busy to very slow, but there is always something to do. Learned a lot about microbiological testing and documentation practices. Most managers are relatively new to the company and are still trying to figure out how to have all the departments work cooperatively in an efficient manner. The workplace culture depends on which department you're in. The microbiology lab is probably one of the best environments- everyone is very kind, supportive, and welcoming. The hardest part of the job is having to come in on some weekends.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – April 7, 2018
Not what I was expecting. The donors and the staff need serious reality checks. You do have a set schedule but you have to work EVERY Saturday. Management was okay. The point system sucks. And everyone there has to have their input on everything you do.
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – October 25, 2017
This company was the most unorganized placed I've ever work. They hire a lot of consultants and most of them leave. There is a high turn over rate. Last year they laid off most of the company. They have problems with regulations and the FDA. The management team is horrible, and threat people like slaves. I worked over 12 hour days 5 days a week when I worked there. The pay or overtime was ok, but you have no work/life balance. Overall, the company is very unstable--I'm surprised it's still open. I wouldn't recommend any one to work there, unless you're right out of school and desperate.
Microbiology Remediation/ Contamination Control (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – March 3, 2017
I was hired with a group of 8 consultants. The second day one was let go because he did not get his IT set up and had to write a report with Pen and Paper. It was deemed not a good match. I worked here for 2 months. There were 2 people left when my time was up. The final count of turnover in the 2 months I was on project 25+ consultants on project for a short time basis.
