    Cons

    kudos given more to mid to upper-management. slow upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    take more time to develop your junior employees. groom employees who have already exhibited the company culture and values, instead of bringing in "hired guns"

    I have been working at Fluidigm full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can definitely get great experience from the projects/ collaborations.

    Cons

    Management is a mess, and they focus and dwell on any and every mistake but never give you credit for everything done right. They have ridiculous expectations.

    Former Employee - Research Associate in South San Francisco, CA
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Fluidigm for less than a year

    Pros

    -Opportunity to work with talented scientists -I felt privileged to work with cutting edge technology -I learned lab techniques that are in demand in my field -Most people are friendly and helpful

    Cons

    -Poor planning at times; things were often unnecessarily rushed -The R&D labs are in need of a manager- there is a lot of inefficient and probably unnecessary spending there

    Advice to Management

    Encourage and promote an environment of mutual respect between all employees.
