Pros

Free food, promote from within, family atmosphere, market leadership, cutting edge technology, diversity, supportive upper management, generous tuition fee reimbursement program and prestige.

Cons

Management prone to make misstep, get out of focus and tend to be high flying leading to losing market dominance and leadership.

Advice to Management

They should have kept the West Sacramento, Ca manufacturing facility because it is the only property that Affymetrix, Inc. owned and practically new and immaculate when it was shut down and move operation to Singapore.
