I enjoyed my work experience at Lancet. Mostly positive and productive, my managers treated us fairly and I enjoyed the the workshops and training they gave us. I resigned at Lancet after 14years for the main reason to experience other opportunities in my nursing career.
Pros
Lancet train their staff very well.
Cons
The different work shifts are very tiring

Lancet Labs to me was a very professional environment. Coming from a restaurant environment where it's all about the customer into an environment where the happiness and comfort of ur staff is as important was amazing to me. Lancet gave me a sense of importance.
Pros
Directly aiding a sick patient
Cons
My shifts unfortunately was only nights which was a bit stressful

Very fun and challenging job initially, but with the arrival of a new manager, conflict arose which made my work-life very unpleasant.

A typical day at work would involve the dispatching and control of various drivers and fleet vehicles.


We were responsible for the collection of human specimens, and then delivery of such at various laboratory locations for the purpose of testing.


Initially management was very flexible but this changed with the arrival of a new manageress that was less so.


At first the workplace had a very good family feel, that also changed with the arrival of the new manageress.


My earnings were in excess of $35000 per annum.


The hardest part of the job was managing ever-changing traffic circumstances which would impact negatively on time sensitive deliveries and/or collections

They don't groom their employees and they don't care about the well being of their employees. No chances of growing once you are inside and they don't recognize their employees

The only issue is that there is poor communication between management and staff. Benefits are cut constantly. No growth opportunity and little interest shown in staff desires.
Pros
Absolutely wonderful patients you meet daily
Cons
Bad communication from management

No room for promotion... You're stuck in your position until you resign... You do not get recognized for your hard work... Not seen as an individial...

Poor management skills, no confidentiality whatsoever, managers discuss confidential staff including salary with their friends, unequality. Senior managers gets angry and unprofessional if they learn staff is leaving, Changing protocols when it suits them telling staff to give 2 months notice when leaving because they are in crisis of staff shortage.

I loved working at Lancet, every day was a new challange. My job requirements were very challenging but manageable. This is a company that keeps up with new technology. Managing people will always be daring. I enjoyed conquering the new challenge that was given to me because I had no Laboratory background and I was appointed as the Charge Nurse

Lancet is a good company but for your growth it has limited space especially if your manager doesn't like you. And sometimes the colour of your skin matters at se provinces.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Managers with personal issues who do not have managerial skills.
