Pros

Best company I've ever worked for. Despite the Roche acquisition in 2009, this is still a top science company and great place for working parents. The benefits are many and plentiful. Even after 10 years, I am amazed at how well Genentech treats its employees. There are many opportunities to move up or over. This is a highly ethical company.

Cons

It's large. You can get lost in the crowd. The bar for performance is very high.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work.
