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

Pros

Great mid level managers and directors, great product

Cons

Poor executive leadership. New CEO doesn't listen or pay attention to what's being said or never understands the topics presented. Too many VPs.

Advice to Management

Bring back Harry Hixons culture of work hard but have fun.

    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.

    Pros

    It's great to see the fruits of you labors turn the company around.

    Communicate with your employees....all of your employees not just a few.
