    Former Employee - Manufacturing Technician in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Pacific Biosciences

    Pros

    - Smaller company feel
    - For the most part, open door policy
    - Food provided (kitchens, sandwich bar, frozen foods, etc), but who knows how long this will last.
    - Upper management very communicative
    - Makes you feel like you actually matter

    Cons

    - As with any company that grows, more structure is necessary.
    - Forecast uncertain. Risk factor.
    - The commute can be rough

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Don't lose the small company feel!
    - Don't work your people to where things stop being fun.
    - Lean manufacturing is an ok concept, but don't forget that the leaner you get, the more you can hurt yourself in the long run. You get what you pay for. Mfg more often than not seems to forget this truth.
