great place to learn lots quickly

Software Developer (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I have been working at Illumina full-time for less than a year

Pros- developers are used to make new software, not maintenance of existing systems
- lots of interesting projects in the bio-tech industry
- fun place to work.
- get to work with the latest software technologies

Cons- not a software company. It's a hardware company first.
- they don't have enough testers, or designers

Advice to Senior Management- hire more testers and designers

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
