    The company is really good at showing you the positive impacts your work has in the genomic research sector.

    They closed their office in Victoria just a few years after purchasing it from a local company. They didn't provide much info to support their decision.

    Avantages

    Very interesting science, genomics. Working there feels like you're helping improve human health.

    Inconvénients

    Constantly changing corporate structure. They take the "move fast and embrace change " value a little too far. The last move in 2017 was to "focus" and shut down their amazing software division barely two short years after "diversifying" by purchasing them in the first place, affecting hundreds of "valued" employees and their family members right at Christmas time. (A more cynical view would say it smells suspiciously like a plan hatched months earlier to improve their stock value at years end).

    The corporate structure is highly stratified, and a lot of decisions that directly affect employees and middle management get made behind closed doors without their input or consideration of their input.

    Conseils à la direction

    Step down from the boardroom and actually understand all your people.

    Je travaille chez Illumina à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Preamble: The group I work with was formerly the Victoria, BC company called Genologics; it is now called Genologics, an Illumina Company. It was purchased about 7 months ago, so the good atmosphere and management and policies in Victoria are mainly attributable to Genologics. I'm not sure what it's like to work in other Illumina software labs.

    In the Victoria software lab, the team works very hard, but also has a lot of fun. The atmosphere is supportive, engaging, energetic, enthusiastic, and generally happy; although you're allowed to be grumpy and out of sorts... usually greeted with humour and jokes. They are not afraid to explore and adopt new technologies that make development work faster and easier to maintain; and management encourages developers to do so. They supply a lot of food, snacks and full meals when required. It's a mac development environment. Team members support each other without hesitation in achieving business goals. The office building in which they sit is surrounded by beautiful park land. Parking is cheap and covered by the company. Benefits are good.

    Bonus: I'm getting paid to work here :)

    Inconvénients

    If you like to work in a noisy urban environment, with lots of eatery choices/shopping in walking distance, then this is not the place for you. It's situated in a bucolic rural/suburban area surrounded by forest and farmland. It's only 15 minutes to downtown Victoria, though, and there are some excellent restaurants within a 5 minute drive.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep up the good work. Illumina should learn from Genologics! The management training for Victoria appears to be excellent, because all the managers and leaders I've worked with in Victoria are down-to-earth, a pleasure to be around, a pleasure to work with, and they engender a positive attitude towards the product and working hard for the company.

    Avantages

    It is an exciting, fast paced company where things are always evolving. Being more junior in my career it has been a great place to grow and gain experience as my manager and team are always supportive. Love that this company is mission oriented and finds new ways to remind employees about their impact on human health.

    Inconvénients

    While it is exciting that we are pushing the needle the pace is fast and might not be for everyone and processes are still developing across the company as we grow and develop as a company.

    Avantages

    Illumina offers an agile and challenging environment as a fast-growing leader in the market.

    The organization is mission-driven and also embraces a progressive approach to company culture with pillars of openness, collaboration and accountability. In addition, Illumina promotes a culture of fun and care with happy hours, family picnics, sports teams and lots of flexibility that allows for work-life balance.

    I have never been bored working for Illumina, there is always engaging work to focus on and people leaders are encouraged to empower employees, enabling tremendous opportunities to take ownership and have direct impact.

    Inconvénients

    The pace of the organization, while exciting can be incredibly challenging. To be successful, you need to be agile, flexible and comfortable with change.
