Disrespectful management, company full of lies
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 5, 2016
A typical day at work consists of disrespect from management, running around doing multiple departments jobs, and wondering when the heck you can go home. Although I did learn about ocular anatomy, most of the knowledge I gained was through sitting by myself looking into a microscope waiting for someone from management to come back and help. They rarely did.
This company will lie straight to your face. When "promoted" to Lab Tech I lost $700 a month due to losing mileage but no longer had to be on call. I was told that the more I learned in the lab the more I would be paid. When I asked them about this later they denied it.One of their favorite sayings is, "That's just the way it is."
They have also RETROACTIVELY reduced the retirement plan by over half, reduced PTO, refused raises (while another department got raises out of cycle), and took away bonuses. Meanwhile upper management hires a "team" of 5 that are directly under the CEO making extremely good money. I got paid $10,000 under national average. And new employees were making more money than me after I had been there for 2 years.
"We just don't have the money." is what they will say. And then they turn around and want to spend money on extremely expensive equipment that we don't need. Buying a new centrifuge, flowhood, incubator (that has sat for a year and we use a box with a light to warm up tissue).
This company is extremely rude and knows nothing about keeping it's employees happy. I would not wish this job on my worst enemy.
FAST FACT: 63.5% OF THIS COMPANY IS A MANAGER OR HIGHER.
Going home at the end of the day
