    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    The focus of work on improving the lives of patients. I understand exactly how my work contributes toward this goal.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, it has developed some really inefficient processes. People are at least cognizent of this, however, and always open to change and improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on how to improve the business,not always on how to improve the processes. Make process lean and non-limiting.

    Pros

    ART LEVINSON!! Don't under estimate the employee trust in him. It's the best company in the US. The culture is laid back, real, and we have a great time working and playing. This is one of the most fulfilling jobs I have had. When I came to pharma sells I wasn't sure if it was the place for me. I realized that GNE has amazing products and pipeline. I never get board. There is always something or someone to learn from. We make differences in patients live. I have worked in the past managing oncology patient treatments. Genentech is invested in providing drugs to anyone and everyone that may benefit from their products.

    Cons

    Although it is a new company- there are some folks that have been here over 10 years that are catered to. Doesn't always make sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share with me why some are picked for promotion and others not. How do you justify these choices?
