Proud to be a Genentech's employee

Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

ProsGenentech is for sure one of the best companies to work for. They offers very competitive compensation package and generous benefits. I like the company's mission of meeting unmet medical needs. It really makes me proud to be part of the team and work in a company who truely cares for the patients and the employee. The working hours are flexible. Important to mention here is that I work at the IT department. For me, as long as I get my work done, the working hours are not that straight. The working environment is fun and most of the people are great to work with. There are many various company, departments or group events throughout the year that promote fun working environment.

ConsGenentech promotes and maintains a free culture that can hinder efficiency.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work
