    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Job security, innovation, career advancement and diverse work environment

    Cons

    Large company = More bureacracy, culture is more corporate and less fun since Roche integration, not too many positions with modified work schedules or "work at home" options

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work with the vision and pipeline but always remember Genentech's roots.

    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.
