FSE @ Illumina
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 21, 2012
Coming straight out of college, I took this position a little for granted. Pay was great (for no experience and a degree). Culture (for the first 2-3 years) was incredible. Company started to mature and tighten down in every dept for everything you could imagine. Still a great company and good people, but just not what it used to be. Will be keeping a close eye on it's competition.. Pacific Biosciences!

Great Place to Work
Tradeshow and Event Manager (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 6, 2017
Lots of perks and benefits. It's a great company, with smart minds and a collaborative environment. Illumina is meeting heavy, but creates a collaborative team effort on most projects.
Pros
work/life balance, benefits, great CEO

Poor management

Big corporation with incompetent managers
Sr. Validation Scientist (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 3, 2017
Behind a nice looking campus hides a stressful work environment, highly incompetent and manipulative management. Lack of benefits or recognition for the hard work is appalling, given the enormous profits the company makes.
Pros
Big Name
Cons
No benefits, poor management.
