I have been working at Sequenom full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Intelligent group of skilled co-workers in the technical departments of the laboratory. Love the work I do, but can't do it for this company anymore.

Cons

Management very out-of-touch with laboratory operations and promotions are difficult to come by. Lots of empty promises made upon start up of the company and start of employment. Difficult to advance and cross-train (unless you want to learn the work you're over-qualified to be doing). If you're very dedicated to your team, you'll be let down when other team members aren't as dedicated to getting the work done.

Advice to Management

Promote within.

    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
