Great company

Current Intern - Co-Op in South San Francisco, CA
Current Intern - Co-Op in South San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Genentech as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

This is an intellectual, stimulating environment to work in. The common goal of bringing forth new drugs and therapies for the benefit of the patient comes across very clear in this community.

Cons

As an intern in R&D, I feel like a slave doing every task that is handed me. I don't feel like I have creative freedom in my experiments. However, this might just be the case with my particular supervisor.

Advice to Management

Ensure that intern supervisors have a shared understanding of their purpose in the intern/co-op program. While productivity is and should be the overall goal, I think there should be more of a focus on the development of the individual person as well. If a supervisor isn't willing to make this a goal, then they shouldn't agree to have an intern.

    Pros

    Transportation for east bay employees--free buses, I had 3 contracts for 2 managers and they were some of my favorite managers to date. They were not afraid to spend a little extra for the right people.

    Cons

    Didn't experience too many bad things.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Genentech culture.

  2. Still a great place to work
