Pros

Relatively good pay, fairly stable employment.

Cons

Politics a major factor. Departments don't work well with one another. Very little chance to be creative in the last few years due to large slow projects eating away all the resources.

    I have been working at Luminex full-time

    Pros

    Senior mgmt is paid well above market average.

    Cons

    For a company so small, they are very top heavy and VPs are paid extravagantly in salaries, bonuses, and stock options. It's a mystery how they can justify to have so many VPs considering their sales numbers are so small by comparison. It's a good old boys club, and so there is not career advancement unless you are in the club. They think they are a progressive and innovative company, but they will soon be losing vast amounts of market share to newer technologies. It's amazing they have kept the investment community so intrigued for so long and managed to keep their stock price up.

    Advice to Management

    Have you walked around the company- every cubicle, every little nook and corner, and really asked if your employees like working for you or in the oppressive culture? Have you looked at why you have had a high turnover of some top caliber people in the past 5 years? Have you thought about anything besides your self? Have you ever heard of Servant based leadership?

    Pros

    There's nothing positive to say.

    Cons

    As people have mentioned previously on this forum, the company culture is based on fear, which is very sad. Sad that executives feel so threatened by the talented people working for them that they feel compelled to have employees fear that every day may be their last. Take a stand for what you believe or data/results that you have-look out if someone doesn't agree/like what you say. As a result of the fear culture, it results in peers turning on each other and making peers look bad in order to escalate themselves or make their organization look better. If you enjoy a team environment, this place is not for you.

    HR must additionally feel horribly threatened by employees working for the company because they choose practices like stalking employees via their LinkedIn accounts...does that help them know when an employee may be looking around? Who knows? But it's certainly not indicative of an HR group who trusts employees or puts value in the company's human assets. My LinkedIn account was checked routinely (every couple of weeks) by HR for about the last year I was with the company. Perhaps it wasn't about checking to see if I was looking around, perhaps it was to see if I had connected with former employees who have filed lawsuits.

    Advice to Management

    Your company would be a lot more successful if you built a culture on team work and valuing the employee.
