I worked at Affymetrix

Pros

Good products and interesting work environment. Very bright people. Great benefits and good salaries. Good sized company (1100 employees world-wide) and ability to make a difference.

Cons

Very much a "hurry up and wait" culture with tinges of bullying throughout the organization, especially in Human Resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay attention to employee surveys and follow-up on feedback immediately if inappropriate behavior and bullying is reported in any area.

    I have been working at Affymetrix

    Pros

    People, benefits, flexiblity, managers, exciting work, lunch program, work from home option

    Cons

    Stock price, lack of market share growth, pay could be a little better, too many opinions from mid-upper management can slow processes,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on inovation rather than continue to market struggling products. Make sure products come to market after comprehensive quality control.

    I worked at Affymetrix

    Pros

    Free food, promote from within, family atmosphere, market leadership, cutting edge technology, diversity, supportive upper management, generous tuition fee reimbursement program and prestige.

    Cons

    Management prone to make misstep, get out of focus and tend to be high flying leading to losing market dominance and leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should have kept the West Sacramento, Ca manufacturing facility because it is the only property that Affymetrix, Inc. owned and practically new and immaculate when it was shut down and move operation to Singapore.
