    Former Employee - Research Associate in Carlsbad, CA

    I worked at GenMark Diagnostics

    Pros

    Intelligent, bright women were hired and provided added value to company goals and product excellence. Location in the heart of Carlsbad's Biotech center.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers and supervisors. Long work hours for passionate employees while others work less with very little productivity. Zero recognition for hard work and achieving challenging milestones.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce attrition rate of valuable employees

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at GenMark Diagnostics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Exceptional talent pool and some of the friendliest people I have ever worked with. With an exciting technology and fast paced work environment boredom is rarely encountered. High degree of inter-departmental transparency and communication.

    Cons

    Deadlines are sometimes a bit lofty and unrealistic. However, there can be a great deal of flexibility to amend deadlines when necessitated upon valid justification. Accessibility of general laboratory amenities can be limiting at times but progress has been made to remedy these issues as the company expands.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Things move very fast and you are able to do a lot of different things. But the deadlines are very tight and you have to work very hard with long hours to meet these goals. You will meet a lot of good people.

    Cons

    -The turnover is very high. -Company is constantly trying to improve talent, which comes at a cost of high turnover and lack of loyalty. -Very aggressive deadlines. -Small annual pay increase. -HR has more say in the hiring process than the hiring manager. -Senior Leadership Team can be very rude. -Lack of promotions

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the current staff instead of always trying to improve talent by forcing turnover. Do whatever you can do reduce the high turnover.
