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

Pros

+ Fully integrated biotech, meaning that you can move between jobs in sales, research, development, manufacturing and in support functions -- all in the same company
+ Promising drug pipeline

Cons

Many of the perqs that were omnipresent during the Avastin years are slowly dropping away, as Roche takes a firmer hand managing the compensation of the US (Genentech) staff. This is least apparent in Research; most apparent in the support functions (IT, HR, Legal, etc.). Be very wary of putting too much stock in the 'Best Places to Work' wins in 2008-2011 -- much has changed since then.

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for, they have good projects/opportunities, and the work environment is very positive.

    Cons

    The temporary employees are not provided with health insurance. Also, the pay is lower than expected and lower than some other companies given the high cost of living in the bay area.
