    I worked at Sequenom full-time

    Pros

    It was fun while it lasted. Had a great manager and enjoyed working with my team. Benefits were awesome. I enjoyed their small, steady paced culture.

    Cons

    More layoffs after LabCorp acquisition. LabCorp's benefits is astronomically expensive. Pay is no longer competitive and we lost our bonus.

    Advice to Management

    You killed our Sequenom spirit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sequenom.

    Interview

    I got a call from the HR person asking some basic questions and 3 days later I was interviewing with the team over the phone. The interview was super technical divided in three parts: Biology, computer science (unix, data structure, programing, algorithms, etc), and statistics (machine learning). The team who interviewed me had 3 people (manager, CS person, and statistics person). I felt that the team was kind of rude and super straight-forward. Not a good experience.
