    I worked at GenMark Diagnostics full-time

    Pros

    They potentially had some good technologies to offer to the diagnostics industry.

    Cons

    The company mainly suffers from a pool of poor and narrow minded senior management/executive team. Great projects on hands of unqualified and poorly educated managers. It is so unfortunate that many good people left the company in the past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Education and right experience are keys in selecting a senior manager/executive in high tech and diagnostics industry.

    I worked at GenMark Diagnostics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing technology and impact on patient care is huge- can literally save lives. Brilliant people in many departments. Celebrations New manufacturing facility is impressive yet not much common area available for breaks Stock

    Cons

    Long hours & huge expectations can feel thankless No 401 K match 10 days Vacation is less than most companies are offering Pay Corporate office could use an upgrade - feels old People don't talk much to one another... always heads down working. Feels very stressful and tense. High Turnover Many good "nice" people leave because they know they can be treated better elsewhere Human Resources doesn't seem to... care about employees and plays favorites. Act very cold and unapproachable.

    Advice to Management

    Be progressive. Be open to new ideas. Lead by example. Listen to employee feedback & act on engagement survey versus lip service and only offering to do things that don't cost any money. Many employees are looking for other jobs. Act like a grown up public company - you're getting too big to act like a mom & pop start up shop.

    Pros

    The people. They are very welcoming and really want to do well at their job.

    Cons

    Some departments need to be more open minded to trying new processes. Management needs to not take Senior titles so seriously, especially if they're doing the same job as the non-senior level employees.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward your current hard-working employees. Many are looking to leave because they feel they are not being rewarded the way they should. More cross-training and internal promotions to different departments.
