Horrible Experience
Product Development (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 27, 2019
I always felt my boss was backstabbing me to take credit for everything. Management was very cliquish and didn't have basic people skills. Some were outright bullies and others were more passive aggressive and rumor oriented. Everything was politically biased to the extreme. A lot of effort was placed on beating down employees. The CEO was really smart but a lot of the middle managers are too entrenched to really follow like they should.
Pros
None
Cons
Politics, backstabbing, rumors and conniving

Supervisor, Early Design Transfer (Current Employee) –  Northbrook, ILDecember 5, 2018
Yes, the benefits are amazing, but there is so much bureaucracy that it's detrimental. Major decisions are made by big-wigs offsite and out of touch with the actual subject matter experts.
Pros
Amazing benefits
Cons
Daily frustrations and unnecessary stress

Lack of Advancement/Communication
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXOctober 23, 2018
Upward mobility capped, management communicates rarely and only when they need to highlight improper practices. Support and growth of individuals takes back seat to personal goals.
Pros
Pay

Thank you for your feedback. As you are aware we have implemented tools to assist with improving communication between managers and employees. This year, the mid-year review was kicked off to allow managers to provide managers and employees with a format to have coaching discussions, i.e. focus on support, growth, competencies, etc. We are moving in the direction of improving the candidate and the employee experience. If you would like additional information on the roadmap of what is scheduled for 2019, please feel free to contact your HR team. We welcome your ideas as well.

Great Place to work but very high turnaround in some groups due to excessive Micro-managing.
Reagent Quality Control Technician (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 6, 2018
Go work there. A lot of good people there. Be wary of positions in Reagent Quality Control. Very high employee turnaround and very hard to advance. even then very small pay increases for advancement in that group.

Reagent Manufacturing Associate II (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 25, 2018
Overall learning is great and well paced. Micromanaging is constant. No room for growth and advancement unless you are "in" with management. Great benefits.

Fast-growing sector of the company but poorly managed in some areas
Manufacturing Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Northbrook, ILJune 4, 2018
Very fast-paced and fast-growing company with an ever-growing customer base. Production goals increase often but some departments are very poorly managed. New Director is establishing his protocols and is reorganizing to fit his needs and direction. Workplace culture is okay but relationship with management is becoming more distant as managers jostle for the director's attention at the employee's expense. Promotions are very rare despite obvious hard work and commitment. Salaries of the employees are above industry standards but they are utilizing contract employees more often. Benefits are very nice and are catered to the employee's choosing. Overall, this has the potential to be a very nice company to work for but beware of the hidden agendas of some higher-ups.
Pros
Pto, pay, health and investment benefits, steady work, scheduling
Cons
Poor management, poor direction, promotions very limited from the ground up

Luminex Review
Partner Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXMarch 21, 2018
The benefits are great and the pay is good, depending on the department you work with. Management can be hit or miss depending on your department. Overall, Luminex is a good place to start out.

Great benefits, Horrible management
Lab Technician (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILJanuary 24, 2018
The workload was fairly easy. Production has increased which is a great sign for future business, however, the lack of communication and team work made it difficult to tolerate not just in specific departments but throughout the entire company. Benefits and compensation were great, but management can do better. Think about your employees more instead of trying to "look good on paper" and having your employees scramble through unprepared training.

Poor Management
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIDecember 7, 2017
Luminex provides fair benefits and health coverage, and I definitely felt valued and compensated for my work. The frustrations came from upper management. People who were put in charge of departments lacked knowledge / skills to get things done and to help advance the company, which is frustrating for someone who is forced to act on poor decisions.

Luminex takes care of their employees
Scientist I (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXMay 11, 2017
Working at Luminex was fast-paced, friendly, and fun. The people and management there were genuinely interested in humancare and the job was demanding but well compensated. We had lots of company parties and free food. There is a great social atmosphere here. I learned alot about how industry works. This is a great starter job in the biotech industry!
Pros
Tons of swag, parties, and pay. People here are awesome
Cons
Hard to stay on more than 1 yr. Turnover is high!

Not a pleasant work environment
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXFebruary 1, 2017
I witnessed upper management speaking of sexually harassing another employee and reported it and it went nowhere. Poor management. If you don't work the 'required' overtime you are history. This is after given permission to not work the 'required' overtime. Morale is horrible. People feel and are trapped in a dead end job. Think before working here it is not as rosy as it may seem.
Pros
None that can think of
Cons
Management is poor at best

Technical Writer/Online Help Developer (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 22, 2016
Cross-functional training.
Women at Luminex group is supportive of all growth opportunities and offers new ideas to help reach your career goals.
Management offers constructive criticism to help you excel in your goals.
There are always new and interesting projects to work on.
Sometimes you have to work a bit extra to meet deadlines as it is in any company.
Pros
Paid training
Cons
Occasional extra hours needed to reach deadlines.

Shipping and Receiving Associate (Former Employee) –  Madison, WIFebruary 17, 2016
The management at the Madison branch is an absolute joke. Procedures are poorly written and only followed when convenient. Poor moral and poor work environment. It's like being in a poor high school. If you want order and a feel good work place look elsewhere.
Pros
Leaving
Cons
Management, compensation, unorganized, terrible moral, and management again.
