    You will not get benefits until you get permanently hire under the company and this can take up to a year.

    GenMark Diagnostics Response

    Thank you for your message. As a temporary employee you will receive benefits through your staffing agency. Once converted to a regular full-time employee GenMark offers, Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and much more to all our employees. Temporary employees are converted to GenMark’s payroll when the business needs dictate and when the temporary employee has demonstrated consistent knowledge of his/her assignments. Both need to be met before we can transition to a regular full-time position within GenMark.

    Equity for almost all positions within the company with good vesting schedule, Company Bonus for all positions, basic Company Holidays, Company Life Insurance and Disability. Standard vacation and sick. Overall, I am happy with my benefits package. 4/5 stars because it doesn't compare to larger company offerings, but makes sense for where GenMark is today. It definitely helps that my pay is competitive too.

    Good benefits, no 401K match at this time.

    Bad benefits: No 401(k) matching, no tuition reimbursement program, no employee referral bonus program, no market adjustments for pay, very small bonuses

    As a growing company, its understandable that big company benefits won't yet be available. Management continues to make small strides with benefits, but should consider easy wins in areas that employees value.

    The worst was the cost for insurance and that they only offer 2 weeks paid vacation.
