One of the best time of my working years.

QC Lab Analyst (Former Employee)
West Sacramento, CA

I worked at Affymetrix

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThey 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
