Sweatshop

Manager (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsGreat products.
Decent Benefits.
Very stable company

ConsNO work-life balance unless you are a Director or above.
Awful bonus program. Compensation is below market
Extremely cheap Sr. staff. They spend hundreds of thousands on holiday parties but pay people pennies when they are expected to be available 24/7
Sr staff has a very old school mentality.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being so cheap with your employees. They work their tails off yet their salaries are well below market. The bonus program is a joke. Stop pretending you are the only company in town who is hiring and therefore you don't need to make your employees happy. Your employees are starting to leave because they are tired of working 24/7

    All decisions are made by the top management, the rest are robots trained to obey.

    Field Work for Illumina

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    I worked at Illumina


    Pros: Pays well. Prestigious employer. Good cafe. Cons: No support of field employees by corporate staff. They are too concerned with their own advancement in San Diego.… Advice to Senior Management: Offer 360 reviews for field employees, including customer feedback. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
