    I worked at Illumina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of smart people, and the amenities of the new campus are great. This is an ideal company for someone that is fresh out of college that still needs to gain skills and be micro-managed.

    Cons

    The worst middle management I've ever had in my professional career, the work life balance. A lot of politics.

    Advice to Management

    Please work on your middle management issues, and realize that seasoned employees that have several years experience don't need to be micor-managed.
