    "Extremely underpaid"

    Current Employee - Electro Mechanical Assembler in San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Electro Mechanical Assembler in San Diego, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    There are some smart people and advanced technology. If you are so inclined, you can really learn a lot working here.

    Cons

    It seems like incompetance is rewarded here. There are a couple very incompetant and stupid people here in high positions that just hang around and make life difficult for everyone else. Contract employees are extremely underpaid and undertitled. Many contract employees have degrees from UCSD and other schools of equal quality, who are titled Electro-Mechanical Assembler 1 and are paid $16 per hour - ridiculous!

    Advice to Management

    Moving your operations to Singapore is not going to save you any money when can you get college graduates in San Diego to work for $16 per hour.

    "Market Lead, but Overvalued"

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good job security as the company is intentionally understaffed to increase margins.
    Compensation still a bit above market, but weighted towards equity

    Cons

    Stock price has little upside
    Sequencing is becoming more commoditized and Illumina relies on high margins which will likely dwindle over time
    Poor work-life balance
    A tremendous lack of leadership below CEO level, still acts like a $100M revenue company
