Soo many people... very little space.
Research & Development Technician (Former Employee) –  La Jolla, CAMay 30, 2013
Very smart people everywhere. Get used to sharing space. Prototype, test and validate. Hardest part of job was debugging RMAs. The most enjoyable part was happy hour Fridays.

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.

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.
