    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

    Pros

    Exciting company vision that benefits human health. Illumina's solutions might be instrumental in curing cancer and other diseases. Dynamic culture with intelligent and high-energy workforce. Challenging assignments and career opportunities. Lots of growth potential. Strong financial rewards (e.g., RSUs). Stock is up 100% in past year. 2014 annual bonus paid at 150% of target.

    Cons

    Building this company into a great organization - and sustaining that growth - is hard work and it requires long hours and personal sacrifices, but the benefits are there for those who commit. Unfortunately, some people view this place as just another job rather than perhaps the most meaningful work they will ever do professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive operational decision-making down further in the organization. Still too much is centrally controlled by a small group of execs. This makes sense for strategy but not as much for operations.
