A challenging but rewarding place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I have been working at Illumina full-time

ProsGreat co-workers
Fast-paced environment to keep you from getting bored
Great technology
What we do is helping change the world

ConsThe fast-paced growth over the last decade has caused many gaps in business processes. So, we are trying to build our infrastructure while using small scale processes.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook for and ask for the gaps and invest in ways to build the sustainable business practices.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
