    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Ion Torrent Systems as an intern

    Pros

    Most of the positions are entry-level for young scientists, BS, MS, PhD. I worked as an intern for a summer during college and was treated very well. Pretty outgoing group, very friendly. Higher-ups are accessible and seem to like their work.

    Cons

    Can be a bit crazy at times, but I worked in the early start-up days when we were trying to make deadlines. A lot of us put in extra hours, but they were incentivized appropriately with bonuses and food.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose that early culture that rewarded risk-taking and encouraged collaboration across all levels of the company. Employees that are happy to come to work produce better results.

    I worked at Ion Torrent Systems full-time

    Pros

    Exciting technologies with great potentials;
    Attracted many smart people, but most of them left after Thermofisher merger;
    Many openings due to people's departure;
    Was great in marketing and selling itself to Life Tech and then Thermo;

    Cons

    Lost the startup mindset; integrated into the stupid large company trap;
    Too many heavy title people without skills;
    losing battle against Illumina;
