Pros

Cutting edge technologies, friendly yet helpful colleagues, and an employee centric culture make Illumina a great company to work for.

Cons

If you cannot work in a fast paced environment that supports a technology that is making science fiction a reality, then you should look to a different company for work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the company grows, so should the push to nurture growth from within the company.

    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.
