    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than a year)


    Interesting projects, intellectually stimulating content, great people. Transparency about promotions and compensation has improved in the short time I've been here. Some individual managers (like mine) are amazing, while I've heard others not so much, but that's pretty much any company. Lots of opportunities to get recognized by upper management. I love the amount of trust and high expectations management has. There's absolutely no competition to see who stays at the office longer - if your work gets done, that's all that matters. If that means leaving at 3 pm to pick up your kids and maybe jumping online for an hour after dinner, that's totally fine. Flexible WFH arrangements as an on-needed basis. Great benefits - automatic 6% of salary 401K contribution, plus 100% matching up to another 4% of your salary. Bonuses tied to overall company performance, so those will vary year to year. Stock grants 2x/year (RSUs & SSARs).


    The biggest con is that we work in a highly regulated environment. I have no doubt that our legal and healthcare compliance group are doing great work and keeping the company safe, but it can be frustrating to hear "No, you can't do that" a lot. That's more of a feature of the industry than GNE, however. Some groups have competing areas of expertise/function, so it can be difficult to take on projects without sensing some resistance from the other group.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly delineate group responsibilities and explain decisions well (ie, we can't do that because it will put us at risk for XXX rather than just saying "No".)
