Still under review
Sr. Engineer (Current Employee), CaliforniaDecember 11, 2015
Pros: Employee stock; Recreation facilities; Summer and winter paid breaks
Cons: Benefits; Relatively new field, experimental/unstable projects
The company is well funded. The company's success is due to it's large flagship sequencing instruments. Employee benefits could be better. Original founders have moved on to new competing ventures. Many failed and delayed projects, do no contract-to-hire. Summer socials with free food and drinks. Very smart bio- scientists and engineers, but lack collaborative direction; stale. Great global presence, with beautiful campuses. Engineering culture is transforming to rigid corporate style. First loses started posting.

Smart overworked and fun employess
Senior Scientist (Former Employee), San Diego,CAOctober 14, 2015
Pros: Smart people to work with
Cons: Poor compliance on policy.
HR people are incompetent in their position. There is no proper policy that protects that true value objective of the company. Managers and seniors are not properly informed and briefed of company policy logistics.

Staff are overworked with no recognition.

Glad I was part of their first 5years of growth.

Good group of smart and fun people to work with.

never seen before for some thing happen
Manufacturing Tech (Former Employee), Hayward,CASeptember 19, 2015
Pros: no comment
Cons: na
The management in Hayward facility is very poor and too much politics therefore some employee are left without reason .
I had a lot experiences in FDA company before I worked there, but some reason they fired me and hired someone who is closed to them.The management in SD head quarter does not know a lot and find out deep over here.
so far , I found good job from the other company who like my experiences to help and bring the company going in the future .

Change is the only certainty
Technical Applications Scientist (Former Employee), Cambridge, ENGSeptember 18, 2015
Pros: Mostly open to innovation and improvement.
Cons: Customer tech support management is a chaotic joke...
Good company where things change fast. Sometimes too fast for people and reality to keep pace because change is always challenging and sometimes fearful. Technically minded people will enjoy it but management leaves much to desire...

Great place to work and the things they are doing with genetics is going to be life changing
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee), Ann Arbor, MIDecember 2, 2014
Pros: fantastic place to work, leading edge of technology
Cons: work out of home so if relocating this makes it tough to meet people.
I would recommend this job to anyone. You work out of home and the needs of the customer always come first. That may sound like a lot but it keeps you busy Monday- Friday and the occasional weekend which was very rare. you always had a few or half office days during the month to get all your paperwork done. I haven't been there since 2010 but I do keep in touch with some of my ex coworkers and they still seem happy. If you want to be on the edge of technology and changing to world this company is like the apple of healthcare electronics so I would keep an eye on them.
