    Current Employee - Computational Biologist in South San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with lots of clever people makes things more fun and interesting
    Successfully producing new drugs that help people makes work fulfilling
    The work life balance is very reasonable so long as you are efficient at getting your work done
    Management really cares about employees and wants us to be happy

    Cons

    Flat structure makes it hard to be promoted in more than name
    Not a great location for living close to work, everyone just about has some sort of commute
