Very busy but manageable

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management really notices your input. There are constant wellness checks and there is an open door policy, all you have to do is your work. It is the perfect place for a hard working person who works well under pressure.

Very productive and educational work place.

Lots of attention to detail, accountability required. You receive all the necessary training you need which equips you to excel at your job. Salaries are not the best but not terrible. Management varies depending on where you're based, mostly ok but sometimes too task/output oriented.

Pros

Great company with great benefits, job security.

Cons

Poor work life balance, low salaries, task orientated

Not a bad place to work for.

I really enjoyed working for Ampath on Night Duty. We had a great team that was hard working with a Night Manager who had an open door policy. Though it is a busy place but work was manageable to good organization and planning.

An excellent platform to enhance your career

A very fast paced work environment since it involved pathology.Excellent Turn Around Times since Pathology is competitive. Excellent team work.A company that you are constantly learning everyday new tests.Protocol adherence and practising the standard operating procedures. Working together with other clinical departments to ensure good turn around time.Always have a contingency plan and this means good team effort.

Pros

Cultural events

Cons

Total concentration. No distractions which is imperative in this environment.

I would recommend working for Ampath any day

Training very efficient Quality Control are taken very serious and is the best from any laboratory I have worked for before. Patient care and quality work guaranteed.

Productive

I enjoyed working very hard and under difficult staff shortages for ampath I do not agree that there should be any staff shortages I do believe top management must ensure that all staff are treated equally

Unethical to the bone

This could be the best lab in the world, but because of their unethical behavior nothing will come of it. I see no plans to change things, it goes against everything I stand for (high quality and correct results) The pay is the worst in the industry and they have capped overtime rates. (Not according to your salary)

Pros

Nothing

Cons

You have to lower your standards to fit in
