    I have been working at Fluidigm full-time

    Pros

    It used to be exciting and dynamic, and have a really solid culture. It was a very aggressive culture, but everyone was really passionate about their work. It's not like that anymore. New people are coming in that may reinvigorate things. Compensation and benefits are good! The proteomics side is exciting.

    Cons

    The genomics side is boring and confusing- endless reorganizations, no idea what management is thinking, projects that don't have a clear beginning or end. Layoffs and turnover has really decimated culture and morale, and the ambition of the company has drastically decreased.

    Advice to Management

    Clarity with employees

    Pros

    Lots of great people around. Managers empower and challenge you to be at your best with an understanding of what is realistic vs what is not. It is a very team orientated place of business but allows for personal growth. Professional growth and career goals are important to managers who want to help you succeed. A very overall positive workspace that allows the employee freedom and a challenge without being over-bearing....

    I worked at Fluidigm full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fluidigm has unique technology and can do many things. scientists are nice and work hard.

    Cons

    Marketing doesn't understand their products. marketing made bad decisions among projects. there is no vision for right projects. the commercial team members have no knowledge on their own platform. They often offer users what fluidigm platform can't do. The senior managers thought they knew the situation but actually not. Many strategies were made after things have happened; marketing flipped decisions to please...
