I have been working at Illumina

Pros

Cutting edge technology. Name brand recognition. Geographically small territories. Pay is competitive.

Cons

Extremely political. Lots of blame game, while not supporting field employees. No trust in employees by management. Promotion only happens for older pre-sequencing employees, regardless of performance. Customers also feel alienated by rapid product changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire the support management. Theyve created a toxic environment.

    Pros

    The company has some very interesting technology that is leading edge and some employees are very good to work with in a team atmosphere

    Cons

    The downside is that some employees are just looking out for themselves and is not part of a team with citing and talking behind your back when they get a chance; in addition, management needs to improve with treating employees with good ethics and understand that certain employees have families and life after work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management would need to create a workplace that has a balanced work/life and become agents that create a work environment that promotes good ethics and healthy work atmosphere for growth.

    Pros

    Benefits package and PTO seem fair.

    Cons

    Opportunities for professional growth at Illumina.Does not happen unless someone likes you personally.
    Recognition and praise you receive when you do a good job. Is not happening they only group you together for a brow beating.
    Fairness in how promotions are given and people are treated. This is very bad, they only give out promotions based on favoritism and politics.

    Work/ life take a beating .Very political place. Toxic bosses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At some point insider politics and the good old boy environment will be bad for your bottom line take action now it may coast you later.

    Good place for an undercover look from the inside.
