The assay they run is great, but not the workplace for me.

I have been working at Sequenom full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Intelligent group of skilled co-workers in the technical departments of the laboratory. Love the work I do, but can't do it for this company anymore.

Cons

Management very out-of-touch with laboratory operations and promotions are difficult to come by. Lots of empty promises made upon start up of the company and start of employment. Difficult to advance and cross-train (unless you want to learn the work you're over-qualified to be doing). If you're very dedicated to your team, you'll be let down when other team members aren't as dedicated to getting the work done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote within.
