Great Benefits ... but the pays was so-so low for the San Francisco bay area

I worked at Genentech full-time (more than a year)

Pros

One of the best benefit package around, and really good people (staff) to work with. Most of the time the work is fast paced and interesting.

Cons

Lots of politics, favoritism, work comes first - personal life second. Always felt like there was a game being played by upper management, but even as a supervisor, I didn't get a copy of the rules.

For being in the bay area, the pay doesn't really compensate for the cost of living, the nature of the work, and the stress one has to endure.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    What makes Genentech a great place to work is the culture, people, and company vision.

    Cons

    If working with global partners, your days can start early, but that doesn't mean you necessarily leave early

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To improve the efficiency of the business, streamlining the number of decision making review committees would be beneficial
