I worked at Genentech as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Genentech really takes care of its employees, they have so many extra services that make life easier for employees. You will work with the best of the best in my opinion. Genentech is very dedicated to making sure employees grow in their careers. Campus is beautiful. Casual atmosphere is great.

Cons

The location can be difficult to get to by car, given Bay Area traffic. Especially, if you are coming from the East Bay. It is also a very large company.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Personal Excellence Program
    Company buses to several regions in bayarea

    Cons

    Too many politics. No focus on patients or customers. Everybody is for their own. Too depressed staff due to several rounds of reorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a grip. Saving money isn't everything. Provide value to business by innovation. In the business we are in, saving a few dollars isn't going to make a difference compared to the immense potential new investments can make.
