I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

Great Environment. Great motivated people. Great places to eat. I live one hour away from this company and I highly appreciate the Genenbus. Without it, I would be wasting a lot of gas and harming the environment.

Cons

Too many inequalities between regular employees and contractors. Contractors can't go to socials which are suppose to bring employees together so they can bond. Wouldn't that make the company stronger? But no, contractors are not allowed to go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on better equality between regular employees and contractors.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, bonuses, room for growth if you have a mindful manager, great cafeterias, nice gym with lots of classes, plenty of time off with vacation & sick days.

    Cons

    Key Performance Initiatives and metrics are unrealistic and can be a guarantee of failure. Some managers are not equipped to manage people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up realistic key performance initiatives.

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

    Pros

    Genentech is a great place with friendly multiculuture working environment. The company cares employees so much and provides good benefit to all including intern, contractors and regular employees.

    Cons

    The only thing I am still trying to get used to is the changing schedule of each project. However, it is the common way for a big company.
