    I worked at Luminex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture is good. Co-workers are friendly. The only good part is Co-workers.

    Cons

    Constant pressures of getting things done even if it not practical. Pay raise is insignificant no matter how much you contribute. People from HQ will keep meddling in your task even if you do the right way. Mind it no one will stand besides you firmly even if you are right. Upper management is busy saving their jobs. It's a company on Ventilator. No innovation, no out of the box thinking, no gratitude for employees....

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are an asset you say then treat them with respect. They have great pride in their work and love working with most people. People often take credits for someone else's work.

    Pros

    Great benefits and market pay. Good culture for the most part

    Cons

    Never in my career have I seen such decision making at the top levels by individuals with basically zero industry experience. Running a business is one thing many can do, knowing how to run a business and manufacturing organization in a regulated environment is totally different. Mfg and quality report to the same org which tells you just how juvenile the business is. Decisions are made that are absolutely mind blowing....

    Advice to Management

    Advice, don’t hire people with industry experience and then tell them to stop being “hostile” when they try to save the company from the pending train wreck the mfg and R&D leadership has set course to do. If changes aren’t made and true industry leaders aren’t brought in luminex is headed for the cliff. I left the company for this specific reason. The decisions being made right now are terrifyingly ignorant and completely...

    I worked at Luminex full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Very relaxed culture with amazing work - life balance. People are very supportive and collaborative. - Some pockets of brilliance with some who are trying to create a supportive career development and mentor mentality. - Some members with 2+ experience in current roles.

    Cons

    - Product management and commercial excellence and vision lacking, so try not to continuously improve without manager buy-in (may get fired for doing what’s right for customers). - Lack of innovation mindset to exceed customer needs, focusing on internal capabilities and management opinions around certain features. In some cases, features are removed from prior release without thinking through ramifications to actual...
