Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Complete Genomics full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Scientifically very exciting, great technology.

Cons

Upper management is mostly from the software industry, low connection level in biotech sector, mediocre understanding of the biotech industry, which add up to poor management decisions.

Advice to Management

(Impossible but...) upper management needs complete reform.

    I worked at Complete Genomics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the company is helping to cure cancer and other severe, genetic deases; the jobs are mostly fairly exciting, crossing the realms of software engineer, molecular biologist, genomics / genetics, and manufacturing

    Cons

    it appears Complete Genomics is trying to create a market before it exists, and has insufficient capital to make that happen.

    Advice to Management

    Install better controls to capture, earlier in the process, when genome analyses will fail and what causes the failures.

    effective "complete" economical move: want to see pictures from the corporate x-mass party - you can buy them
