I have been working at Illumina full-time

Pros

You are working with some of the brightest and most motivated people on the planet. I have worked for big names such as Tesla, and this place is a nerd paradise. It is fast paced and you will never be bored. Also, the work/life balance is pretty decent considering the high level at which we operate. Finally, this is easily a career company, which really takes a proactive interest in growing it's employees.

Cons

It's funny that this is a required section. I can't think of any really. However, I will say that you must have work ethic and a team mentality to thrive here. All good stuff :)

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. Everyone from front line managers to the CEO are committed to our mission. Thanks for choosing to hire me!
