Illumina treated me fairly, and in addition to learning a lot, I had many positive experiences with my colleagues.

Product Manager (Current Employee)

ProsIllumina is the leader in its industry, and is keenly aware of, and responds to, competitive threats.

ConsUnless you are in the San Diego office, you are effectively a "second-class citizen". Communication to other offices is poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't pay lip-service to developing the management skills of employees who are managers - actually do it, and take it very, very seriously. It would dramatically reduce turnover. While turnover is not great, it could be much lower.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Illumina full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Nice campus, iCafe, company parties are fun, stock is going… Cons: If you love working then this is the place for you because you'll be here morning, noon, and night. La Jolla in the dark… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
