    I have been working at Complete Genomics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people come from various backgrounds and the science is top-notch. The free food, snacks, vending machines, and drinks were great too.

    Cons

    Too many managers and not enough workers to do the real work. It has grown by mainly hiring managers externally instead of promoting internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a career growth path that promotes the folks internally instead of constantly hiring managers externally who don't understand what we do. Hire more workers and less executives and look at profit sharing for all instead of bonuses only for the top executives/managers.

    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
