Pros

Very great campus, with all amenities, great people. The work done here is remarkable. This place has all the room to move up into business. It will always be in business. Great staff of people and customers are very trained along with fabulous Customer Service.

Cons

Long wait for passwords, networks when your new employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would say more "Company" days where the relaxation of coming in to work is felt on certain days. More company activity's to create bonding between departments along with departmental development.

    At the cutting edge of DNA innovation; however, be careful not to trade quality for velocity

    Pros

    Very responsive to employee surveys regarding concerns. Provides ongoing training & education. Promotes a fun, open and high expectation working environment for all employees. Numerous amenities offered to employees at San Diego headquarters.

    Cons

    Growing quickly, but does not have correct infrastructure and procedures to support that yet. Should focus more on Information Technology capability gaps in order to realize full potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive for innovation must also be balanced with maturity of that rapidly advancing technology.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don'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.
