Sales Representative (Current Employee) – EMEA – 25 April 2019
Clique culture where nastiness is rewarded. HR more like a secret police. So call employees feedback or Power of I more of a beauty contest; employees are scared because they think it's not anonymous. If you thrive in hypocrisy and viciousness, then you will feel right at home!
Good benefits, overall very skilled and experienced colleagues, CEO has a great vision for the company, the core message about unlocking the power the genome is noble.
Vitriolic management culture, no career prospects unless in the right circles
good place to work and learn alot and learning company

Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 12 March 2019
Illumina is an amazing company that provides opportunity to expand your knowledge of the genetics world. Keep in mind this is a large organization and growing everyday. If you have the opportunity to work here and you don't mind large organizations, I recommend you go for it.

iLLumina work culture is great as there are lots of perks and benefits to go around. The company parties like no other company I've work for. Teamwork between groups is excellent and always for the benefit of the customers.
Operations (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 3 March 2019
Bringing up the need for additional resources fell on deaf ears. Company reduced staff then expected remaining staff to take on the load. Management failed to listen to the need to replace staff. The mantra "Fail Fast" has a deeper meaning here.
Some good people to work with
Way too many poor new management ideas implemented without thinking through the risks.
Inventory Specialist I (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 28 December 2018
For such a big company the people make it feel like some small company. everyone is so friendly and willing to help make you a better co- worker. I love this company. Best company I have worked for EVER.
great fun company if you work with right management
Sr. Buyer (Current Employee) – Redwood City, CA – 7 December 2018
I love Illumina as a whole; however, if you work for the wrong manager then you are looking to fail. Some managers are great to work for and other not so much and make life not so sweet. I guess this may apply at any job as well.
Sr. Marketing Specialist & Graphic Designer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 13 November 2018
Illumina is a dynamic company with an exciting contribution to make to changing our world, globally. Internally change is the name of the game and its constant but its not an issue if you don't mind...only when of course you get laid off which I did after almost 4 years. Otherwise I'd still be there. Loved the company. Loved the people...would love to still be there!
Work environment (people and facilities), salary, perks/benefits, mission in the world

Clinical Lab Technician II (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – 29 October 2018
Most of the day in the lab at Illumina involves moving plates of samples from one autoloader to another to push the samples through our genotyping process. I am also involved in a handful of administrative tasks that have included, organizing schedules, finishing a capacity calculator for our labs production, and rewriting/editing work instructions and SOPs.
