I have been working at Illumina full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Amazing Technology, Innovator, Market Disruptor, Great San Diego campus

Cons

Just read the Glassdoor criticisms -- they are mostly legitimate. But Illumina is still a young company and is going through expected growing pains.

Advice to Management

Hire the best and let your employees take you to the next level. Matt is the real leader of the future. Most want to work for him because he hires the best, lets them do their jobs, and provides the vision and support they need. Too many executives are obsessed with not losing their jobs and pleasing Jay. Start promoting more of us into senior management and move over.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great products. My direct coworkers were nice. Very consistent 9 to 5 kind of job.

    Cons

    Didn't see much growth. Hayward felt like the step-child of the company, always had to prove that we were worthy.
