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

Pros

You get to work with new technologies and some very smart people. The tests offered by the company are innovative.

High demands with limited resources. Have had a couple major layoffs in the last 5 years, mixed with periods of fast growth.

    I worked at Sequenom full-time

    Pros

    Gym at the office, very exciting products to work on, good benefits

    Cons

    Overly conservative management, risk averse, structural instability (regularly moving offices and cubes), low employee morale, no 301k match, regular layoffs, weak corporate identity and culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allude to the possibility of layoffs before making drastic cuts, i.e. 13% of the company without notice, work to get acquired or partner with a larger company

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
