    I worked at Genentech as a contractor

    Pros

    Great name and benefits...if you're lucky enough to become a FTE. Contractor pay is great but they can get rid of you very easily.

    Cons

    Contractors were being hired in clinical management while the department re-orgs. A lot of the FTE staff were leaving for Gilead and other Bay Area biotechs.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
