"Illumina is a fantastic employer who really cares about employee satisfaction. We were entitled to all the same generous benefits as the full-time staff which helped us feel really valued. The placement itself was managed really well, from the induction, support, and opportunity to complete an important and interesting project as well as a short project offsite in a hospital."
