    Pros

    Lots of challenging work, lots of opportunities for learning, great colleagues across the globe, no micromanagement and fast pace dynamic environment.

    Cons

    Work overload, work/family balance is non-existent. Medical benefits quality started trending down, management failed to keep their promises. Certain business units got better perks than other business units showing favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Policies and incentives should be applied equally across the business units. Re-calibrate the workload and balance to match peoples capabilities. Ensure managers are competent and give them appropriate training to be able to manage others.

    Pros

    The quality of the people and products at LT are amazing. It is a good step in the way to a good company such as Illumina.

    Cons

    The company has no loyalty to its employees. When the 4th quarter arrives no job is safe. Therefore, many of the people working are contractors. Contracts are easy to cancel without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees and worry less about the landscaping!
