I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 5 yearsPros
I have met many different types of people and personalities and there's never a dull moment.
I believe I am fairly paid across industry standards, I get 12 hours of paid vacation a month, and the company is a huge advocate of making positive changes that enhance our safety, quality and production.Cons
This company is well-known, but like many companies, still very disorganized, possibly due to high turn over rates. I've had over 7 supervisors in the last 5 years and it's hard to create a positive reputation or to demonstrate growth to those in positions to hire or promote due to high turn-over rate for even leadership personnel.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep people-oriented. As a leader, you should want to command a group that will out of respect voluntarily choose to follow and aid in your vision that not only benefits the company, but benefits the development and growth of your personnel.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genentech.Interview Details
Applied through a recruiting agency. First, I had to take an online simulation test. Very straight forward and simple, as long as you pay attention. Interviewed in person with two managers. No introduction, just asked three situational questions. Not too difficult but be prepared to come up with specific examples.Interview Questions
