    I worked at Fluidigm full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    company looks good from outside....from inside, its a mess.....lots of incompetent people have gone to the top.... don't believe anything you see.

    Cons

    No hikes if you are joining at a higher package no matter how good you work its a cost center.....so saving money is their biggest concern they will give lot of rewards to low salaried employees and give nothing to high salaried once so much that they get frustrated. lots of politics at the top.....some of the leaders are really incompetent. its basically a bpo in technology, the quality of work is really bad.

    Second Major Cons- Salary delay of more than 2 months. Older employees bullies. No vision and mission. You have to lick the management balls for your stability. No motivation from the management

    Advice to Management

    Please create an environment where employees can work. Also please stop making people fool and try to respect them who are putting their efforts to generate revenue and earned new projects for you.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fluidigm (South San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The process was very straight forward. I was contacted by Talent Acquisition for an initial screen, which was followed up with two on site interviews with members of the executive team. The process was straight forward and the Talent Acquisition head was a pleasure to work with. The executive team is very passionate and knowledgeable about taking the organization to the next level.
