I worked at Genentech full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are some great people to work with at Genentech. Very smart, and easy to collaborate with.

Cons

Like any big company, not all managers are equal, some are not the best at keeping their reports strengths, goals and accomplishments in mind. Also, they are experiencing some of the pains associated with becoming part of a giant pharmaceutical company (and probably a bad economy).
