I worked at Illumina full-time

Pros

great location in San Diego. Brand new campus with good facilities. Comfortable working hours and good company culture.

Cons

Not much vertical movement within the company. Often times people are brought in from the outside instead of promoting people from inside.

    I worked at Illumina full-time

    Pros

    excellent facilities, great location, extensive infrastructure, great Information Technology support, great diversity. the administration and human resources and almost anyone NOT working in scientific or technical areas are phenomenal

    Cons

    absolutely no career potential. no attention to detail or quality. pathetic research and deveopment. completely ignorant of industry standards. no clear direction, vision or competencies within the management structure. very short sighted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of all the middle managers that have no idea what they are doing. recognize quality, honesty, hard work, experience, dedication and character. place company culture and employee happiness at the forefront.

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

    Pros

    Great industry - genetic analysis has a huge future, and is populated by smart, effective people
    Great technology - SBS chemistry is the most accurate, reliable method for analyzing genetic data, and Illumina's arrays are unparalled
    Great people - Illumina employees are smart, motivated, innovative and values-based
    Great performance - Illumina's financial performance over the long haul is really strong

    Cons

    The company is getting bigger, and the infrastructure is evolving slower than needed. Key professionals in support functions feel the company under-invests in their areas of expertise.
