    I worked at GenMark Diagnostics full-time

    Pros

    Free weekly bagels, but not much other incentives.. worthless stock options that vest after a few year employment. Consider employment elsewhere if you're not desperate for work..

    Cons

    Bad managers that micromanage your work, too much politics for a smaller sized company, too many fires to fight, very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Implement production worker/engineer level skip level meetings directly with the CEO

    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.

Horrible commissions out side of probably 3 reps. Micro managers, micro managers, micro managers. Company is ran like a...
