Not recommended for Clinical Laboratory Scientist
Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – November 21, 2018
High volume, high work load, non stop specimens, severely understaffed, 100% lack of respect and recognition for clinical laboratory scientist, the education we have and the work we do especially among nurses, doctors and hospital administration. Low compensation and very low shift differential (especially in comparison to other area hospitals), yearly performance review/raise not enough to keep up with inflation, high insurance premiums and deductibles, CLS are not union therefore have no real bargaining power. Management unwilling to make any real changes, always nickle and diming, implementing cost cutting measures, have had several layoffs in the lab within the past few years, poor morale among lab workers. This may be a great place to work if you are a nurse (who basically run the hospital and have high compensation and respect) but if you are a CLS sorry but I would not recommend working here.
Low pay, Low differential, Bad management, Lack of respect for cls esp. From nurses
