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

Pros

Good location, competitive salary, and fast-paced culture developing cutting edge technology make this company a solid place to work.

Cons

Shifting vision, challenges with finances and inability to execute on developing a pipeline beyond the core prenatal franchise make job security suspect.

Advice to Management

Visibility on rate of collections was very poor

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sequenom full-time

    Pros

    Gym at the office, very exciting products to work on, good benefits

    Cons

    Overly conservative management, risk averse, structural instability (regularly moving offices and cubes), low employee morale, no 301k match, regular layoffs, weak corporate identity and culture

    Advice to Management

    Allude to the possibility of layoffs before making drastic cuts, i.e. 13% of the company without notice, work to get acquired or partner with a larger company

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

    Pros

    Pros: Company spends lots of money in unnecessary stuff...but TGIFs were great for those who remember the good old days.

    Cons

    Cons: unexperienced management

    Sequenom is a good place for R&D if you are scientist. Specially great are the TGIFs...they cut back on those now.

    However, if you are a CLS CAUTION and stay away from it. It was cited numerous times by CLIA and dont know why they are still open. You are much better off with working in Quest/Labcorp.

    Advice to Management

    Their CLIA management sucks and still under training. Not a good place for a CLS
