    1. 1.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Amateur executive management that thrives on a fear based culture.

      Pros

      Lots of intelligent employees who are experts in their field. It's an exciting technology that really does make you feel like you are a part of something that could do good in the future. They do have some fun activities and the pay is generally okay.

      Cons

      Everything else. It's unfortunate that they have so many great employees who ultimately leave due to management. They have had ~4 CFOs in the past 5 years. Yelling and belittling are a common expectation for any meeting. Everything is aimed towards getting ready to sell and the company who does inquire had better do good due diligence.

      I have no complaints about Genmark. Upper management listens to those under them and really care about their employees.

      Great Company on the rise with Roche

      Pros

      Strong leadership team comprised of very talented and very smart individuals with a passion for excellence and commitment to great products and services. The Roche acquisition is a reflection of how strong and steadfast the C-level team is in executing all company goals. I look forward to the integration with Roche, which can only make this organization a stronger player in the global market.

      Cons

      HR is our Achilles heel. They are highly disorganized, mostly absent, and indifferent to employees needs. I am new to the company but I hope that the Roche merger will fix this part of the organization. They need better people to manage and operate HR activities.
