I have been working at Illumina

Pros

Be able to work for an organization that contributes somehow to life science technologies.

Cons

No work-life balance, lack of team work, lack of recognition from management, and an organization that needs to restructure it's management with more experience to align/support with company growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to create a team working environment and be able to incorporate work-life balance for working families.

    I have been working at Illumina full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Illumina is experiencing tremendous growth. Coworkers are very supportive and flexible. There is a sincere interest to change the world of medicine. The campus is beautiful and there is a lot of energy around the campus.

    Cons

    No issues or challenges to report. The company is solid overall. They just need watch after their culture and retain talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward and as you grow resist the desire to become a slow large machine. Maintain the great culture and values you have. Remain independent and invest in innovation
