Reviews

  • Experience after LabCorp's aquisition of Toronto business

    2013-04-23 06:57:02.307

    LabCorp is a leader in the lab services space with strong technical expertise. Very stable public company with significant opportunity to grow in your career in North America - especially if you are willing to move.

    A very large organization and sometimes a challenging cultural environment. Also, given the company has grown through acquisition, there are various challenges around the integration of the business units which may or may not impact you depending on the department you work in.
