    Pros

    Luminex has smart, passionate people who work here. The connection to our customers is important aspect in how we do business and helps us provide the right solutions. The employee benefits are leading in our industry.

    Cons

    Communication across the organization can be a challenge. Due to the size and number of sites, there needs to be focus on improving this effort. Also, try to update some of the older buildings within HQ campus.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to employees at all levels and sites to obtain his/her feedback for future improvements. Continue to look for opportunities that support diversity in the top levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Luminex Corporation is a good place to work. The benefits are competitive, salaries are competitive, not at the top of the pay scale. The people you work with are from all different backgrounds. There are always new challenges and things to learn. The company is growing and the work life balance is good. It has a younger energy and the marketing team does a good job of keeping the brand feel fresh.

    Cons

    The amount of work to get done can feel overwhelming at times. Like most companies today, there is always more work than can get done. There is not a clear career path and long term career growth is a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Work on career development as a priority for employees.

    I worked at Luminex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Senior Management was very supportive

    Cons

    In tech support I had 6 managers in 6 years, merged then divided several times. High turnover, but the people that were hired were great people.
    Their development cycle hopefully has improved as they had a bad habit of turning out products before they were properly tested, leaving tech support to find solutions that were later having to be built into the system which should have been put in before release.
