Horrible management

Field Applications Scientist (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Illumina

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

ConsExtremely 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 Senior ManagementFire the support management. Theyve created a toxic environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
