    I have been working at GenMark Diagnostics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Genmark has a lot of great new people mixed with great legacy people; many of the new people have under two years here. The technology is awesome. Strong focus on manufacturing with the ramp-up of ePlex. Lots to own and put your mark on. And obviously located in beautiful Carlsbad. Come join the fun!

    Cons

    Some scrambling with the switch to a manufacturing focus (but produces lots of opportunity). They only provide bagels on Wednesday and not every day. :)

    Advice to Management

    None yet. Just sell the heck out of ePlex!

    Advice to Management

    -they should talk to the operators too and find out what was going on inside the cleanroom not just the lead. Sometimes lead doesn't tell everything and the truth.

    I have been working at GenMark Diagnostics

    Pros

    Cool technology that compared to competition is a years late and a dollar$ short.

    Cons

    Porsche driving management that’s clueless. Products that competition just smacks around bc they’re extremely late to the game. Most of management ex-Ventanna. 0 autonomy as reps to close a deal bc every deal is so complex and custom that only management can close. Not enough products to sell. Horrible commissions out side of probably 3 reps. Micro managers, micro managers, micro managers. Company is ran like a...

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your own way. If the company is going to sell all of you should resign immediately!!! Some of you have No healthcare experience and is here because of who you are.
