I have been working at Sequenom full-time

Pros

I feel like they care about employees and results. Harry wants to keep people informed and he makes and effort to talk to everyone from all levels. I feel like no one is afraid when he shows up. At my previous work place everyone would get nervous when the CEO popped by. It is a very friendly community that supports one another.

Cons

I get a little worried about its past but they are still trying.

    I have been working at Sequenom

    Pros

    Sequenom management was traumatized by their T21 law suit. Most of the officers were replaced.
    Great happy hours.

    Cons

    Only officer get bounces. The employees are still learning how to use SAP. The company is running a defect, they may be out of business within 12 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    R&D needs to focus on revenue generating options or sell/ license current unused tech.

    I have been working at Sequenom full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great mid level managers and directors, great product

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership. New CEO doesn't listen or pay attention to what's being said or never understands the topics presented. Too many VPs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back Harry Hixons culture of work hard but have fun.
