    I have been working at Complete Genomics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    High Salaries to get some decent talent.
    People who have Phd's might find it a good place to park for a while with new funding from China Govt. (BGI) because of the company sale recently.

    Cons

    ** IMP: This is not a place for any above average technologists or Software Engineers.

    People play politics to stay in the company and have no prospects in the outside world stay longer and for ever.
    No 401K Match.
    Shitty Health Plan. Get compensated for not buying from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Fire people who have been older than 1 year at the company or evaluate them to get a feel of how they had degraded the company. Get some 401k match. Get a decent health care. Get some provisions for employee training.
    CEO wake up and do the execution of the company and leave the science to the other capable.
