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

    Pros

    I've been with the company for almost 1/2 a year now and have seen mostly improvement in the quality of employee's joining the company (new thoughts, new enthusiasm etc) and the changes in Sr. Leadership. The company culture is one of hard work but acknowledgement of work life balance needs and a significant appreciation of employee's and their importance to the company. the Executive Leadership team is open and welcoming...

    Cons

    Could improve cooperation between functional groups at times.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Lots of great people around. Managers empower and challenge you to be at your best with an understanding of what is realistic vs what is not. It is a very team orientated place of business but allows for personal growth. Professional growth and career goals are important to managers who want to help you succeed. A very overall positive workspace that allows the employee freedom and a challenge without being over-bearing....
