The lab was a busy place to work with an ever increasing and unpredictable work load. This meant that you had to work well with all other departments in order for the entire process to run smoothly and the desired outcomes and deadlines were met for clients. The people are hard working and dedicated to their jobs but limited career growth opportunities.
The hardest part of the job was the ever increasing workload and demands from clients requiring some unreasonable efforts from staff. Created a stressful environment at times.
People were the best part of the job and the ability to learn more and new things within the job. Travel between sites was often an opportunity to staff to help other sites nationwide in busy times.
