I have been working at Sequenom full-time

Pros

The company employs vanguard molecular technology to offer crucial maternity assay. As one of the few providers, it's likely to enjoy substantial prosperity in the future. Technologists assigned to work in post-amplification modules, with next-generation sequencers, benefit from critical professional experience and stimulating workflow.

Cons

Workload in pre-amplification modules is overwhelming. Staffing and equipment resources are lacking and with no clear signs of improvement. Executive projects are quixotic and pretentious, rather than utilitarian or motivating.

Advice to Management

Listening to your employees is only half of the battle.
