I worked at Genentech

Pros

Competitive products that deliver value to patient. Competitive pay and benefits keeps the right people on the team. Collegial atmosphere.

Cons

The culture has changed with the Roche acquisition. Although still a creative company, this aspect has been dampened somewhat. More process-oriented.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think management is doing well given the challenges over the past four years. I would recommend that they continue to focus on patient (customer) and employee.

    I worked at Genentech

    Pros

    The 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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep following the science and do what is right for our patients.

    Treated poorly as a contractor

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    Informative Intratent and good IT resources.

    Cons

    Poor communication. As a contractor, you are not able to experience the benefits that Genentech employees get down to sharing communal bicycles. Contractors are treated like subordinates. Good policies only apply to a small amount of individuals on campus that are Genentech employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider equal treatment of contractors and employees.
