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

    Pros

    Location of company
    Campus environment
    Facilities
    On-site gym with multiple cafes
    Equipment provided to employees for their use

    Cons

    All work, all the time, all day, night, weekend long
    No career development from what i can see, just a lot of smoke and mirrors
    Incredibly elitist and arrogant attitudes by most of management
    Management acts as though its a privilege for anyone to work there
    Micro management all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have a life outside of Illumina
    There are other companies just as good
    Stop your self-centered focus on your equity
    Trust employees
    Recognize technically sharp managers are not the greatest of people leaders
