I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A place that values individuality and cares about the patient and employee. Culture and benefits are pretty good. Lots of room for growth.

Cons

Everything used to be better. Roche is slowly killing what made Genentech so special. I'm not as happy as I used to be.

Advice to Management

Fight the Roche penny pinching and bring the fun culture back

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great reputation, unlimited resources, and working with talented people

    Cons

    It is very stressful working as a postdoc in Genentech. The stress is not necessary from the boss, but probably comes from the initiatives to do great work.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
