TestAmerica Laboratories Employee
in Sacramento, CA

"Practically nonexistent raises for more than five years. More attention to bottom line than to quality, technical excellence and retaining key staff. Serious and steady decline in morale for the past two years, with most of us looking for a way out now. CEO and his executive management seem clueless or choose to ignore the situation."

"It is, in all honesty, the worst place that I have ever worked."

What do you like about working at TestAmerica Laboratories?

What don't you like about working at TestAmerica Laboratories?

"To summarize what it is like in TestAmerica, Inc. - Dayton: We live in America. The company is called TestAmerica. It is run like it is NazI Germany. The staff is oppressed. There isn't a career path. No raises. The 401k is not matched. The lab director writes up the employees for any and every little thing. It is really embarassing."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"No suggestions for management, however, I do have one for the board of directors: sell the company. Sell it to someone who wants to lead by example"
