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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great science. Really, genuinely nice people to work with in all departments. Benefits are solid and salaries tend to be on the high side. Location is easy to commute to.

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by. People management is not a priority for the company, and some managers have very poor people skills. No 401(k) match.

    Advice to Management

    Get a vision and communicate it.

  2. Untapped potential is left to rot by the wayside.

    Pros

    Hours are good if you set boundaries and stick to them-other wise they will take advantage of your time. Lots of free food.

    Cons

    Management is severely lacking interpersonal relationship skills. Employees are not recognized for their accomplishments within the company. The overall moral is grim and fading.

    Advice to Management

    Send your managers to management classes that teach them how to positively encourage their employees to succeed.
