    Pros

    Strong sense of values and grasp of what it will take to keep growing. They have their eye on the prize for sure.

    Cons

    Confused culture. It's a young company entering its teenage years. They need to identify what it will take to really retain their talent...especially as they grow.

    I have been working at Illumina full-time

    Pros

    Growing industry, hiring loads of employees, fabulous building and campus with cafeteria and gym, great benefits

    Cons

    Poor office politics with lots of gossip, very cliquish environment among employees who have worked there for years and do not accept new employees or new management processes. The Marketing dept actively rejects project management processes. I keep hearing the phrase "that's not how we do things here." It's a shame such an innovative company is so short-sided to corporate management processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote emotionally unstable people to management.
