    I have been working at Luminex as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It is a great place to learn new things because everyone encourages you to try new things. The work environment was great and everyone is always open to questions and helping you. There many interesting and challenging technologies that are being developed and you can be a part of it! The company also truly cares about its employees.

    Cons

    The company is rather young so it is still in the process of deciding what it wants for certain aspects of the company, but this is the usual for most growing companies.

    I worked at Luminex full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    decent wage, benefits package, conveniently located in Austin

    Cons

    Very cliquish, cut-throat and lacking in loyalty. If you're one of the boys, you're in but if you're not, watch your back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top heavy in VP's and directors with little to show for their bloated paychecks.

    I worked at Luminex

    Pros

    I worked for Luminex for over 8 years and during my tenure, I was mentored up and given great opportunity to advance my career and lead. I found management supportive, interested in my career development, and respectful. The technology is sound, the quality of scientist is exceptional!

    Cons

    There was quite a bit of reorganization, and re-prioritization, which can be frustrating to some. However, this also always presented new opportunities for employees who asked, and in which the management saw potential.

    I have been working at Luminex full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Opportunity to wear many different hats and acquire on the job training. The company cares about its employees and their families. There are a lot of opportunities to stretch your skills, you just need to be self motivated enough to seek them out. Company values self starters.

    Cons

    The company is still rather young and in the process of trying to decide what it wants to be when it grows up. This seems to create an environment of consistently changing priorities which can be somewhat frustrating.

    Pros

    Healthcare. Flex time. Nice facilities.

    I worked at Luminex as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Positive working environment, push you explain why experimental results are what they are instead of accepting failure/success.

    Cons

    I worked for an entire summer, but I never got an answer regarding future employment despite my great reviews from my Boss and team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For an intern the only thing on their mind is if they have job at the end of internship. I would recommend that Management keep that in mind when they hire.
