I worked at Complete Genomics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Scientifically very exciting, great technology.

Cons

Upper management is mostly from the software industry, low connection level in biotech sector, mediocre understanding of the biotech industry, which add up to poor management decisions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

(Impossible but...) upper management needs complete reform.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Good place to work for, however executives were very opaque regarding the health of the company

    I worked at Complete Genomics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    the company is helping to cure cancer and other severe, genetic deases; the jobs are mostly fairly exciting, crossing the realms of software engineer, molecular biologist, genomics / genetics, and manufacturing

    Cons

    it appears Complete Genomics is trying to create a market before it exists, and has insufficient capital to make that happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install better controls to capture, earlier in the process, when genome analyses will fail and what causes the failures.

    Doesn't Recommend

    weak commercial department
    HR is moving the start-up company towards complete "corporate america"

    effective "complete" economical move: want to see pictures from the corporate x-mass party - you can buy them
