    I worked at Illumina full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of freedom when working on a project. Had little difficulty getting resources needed, and lots of freedom on choosing how to approach a problem.

    Cons

    If you need a lot of direction, not the place for you. After you finish a project, expect to have to find your next one. Several times I would volunteer for a project, and be told to find something else to do. certain aspects of company culture are very elitist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need younger people in the company. Also need better direction from managers.
