    I have been working at Sequenom full-time

    Pros

    The company employs vanguard molecular technology to offer crucial maternity assay. As one of the few providers, it's likely to enjoy substantial prosperity in the future. Technologists assigned to work in post-amplification modules, with next-generation sequencers, benefit from critical professional experience and stimulating workflow.

    Cons

    Workload in pre-amplification modules is overwhelming. Staffing and equipment resources are lacking and with no clear signs of improvement. Executive projects are quixotic and pretentious, rather than utilitarian or motivating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening to your employees is only half of the battle.

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

    Pros

    Good location, competitive salary, and fast-paced culture developing cutting edge technology make this company a solid place to work.

    Cons

    Shifting vision, challenges with finances and inability to execute on developing a pipeline beyond the core prenatal franchise make job security suspect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visibility on rate of collections was very poor
