24/7 work non stop manufacturing.
Very stress filled & mad people on your back.
very political environment after 8 years as Illumina grew.
no system of promotion to next level, all political or friendship based.
HR provides no balance for employee grievances.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

waste of time as long as the stock is great they could care less.

    Pros

    It is a great place if you want to make a contribution in the development of genomic technologies that will have a real impact in society

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the company suffers poor management. There is lack of recognition, you have to work long hours, the culture and values only exist in paper.

    A waste of time if you are a mid-level+ employee

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Illumina full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of smart people, and the amenities of the new campus are great. This is an ideal company for someone that is fresh out of college that still needs to gain skills and be micro-managed.

    Cons

    The worst middle management I've ever had in my professional career, the work life balance. A lot of politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please work on your middle management issues, and realize that seasoned employees that have several years experience don't need to be micor-managed.
