    I worked at Genentech

    Pros

    Fair wages, great benefits -- you can feel good about yourself working here! Mid level managers still seem to care about what's going on.

    Cons

    It's a struggle. Rules are getting more stringent. More perks being taken away. Morale is suffering. Intensified feeling that senior management is either incompetent, doesn't care, or both. "Best places to work" billboard on 101 was put up the day after massive layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to your employees. Read the comments on the intranet. This can still be a great place to work. Stop putting billboards up, especially when they feature someone you laid off the day before. Start promoting people based on merit, not politics.
