I liked working at Genentech

Process Engineer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsThe company always said we would go where the science leads us and we do what was right for our patients. We didn't worry about next quarter's profits or the stock price.

Great benefits, great co-workers (I've never worked at company with so many smart people) and good pipe line of new products

ConsThe manufacturing group is too bureaucratic and making a simple improvement is too difficult. Following cGMP change control was only a small part of the bureaucracy that you needed to work through to make a simple improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep following the science and do what is right for our patients.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
