One of the best pharma places to work in the world

ProsGenentech is amazing in terms of how many resources they have and how structured everything is. Great perks, corporate culture, co-workers, missions/goals, and support they offer to employees and it's own community.

ConsGenentech is already a well established company. And because it's such a big company, employees are competitive and sometimes inappropriately aggressive to climb up and be promoted.

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow everybody to be more involved or at least connected (in terms of decisions and changes) in upper management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Genentech


    Pros: Feels great to know that you're contributing in the fight against cancer. Lots of smart and passionate people. Feel great waking up in the morning… Cons: Work/life balance can be a very difficult. Some of the "lifers" have a total sense of entitlement and don't know how good they have it… Advice to Senior Management: Don't tolerate empire builders and ass kissers.
