Pros

Culture of focussing on unmet needs, smart co-workers, great benefits (including on-site child care and slightly discounted cafeterias), and good career mobility

Cons

Fair number of layers of bureaucracy have developed over the last 5+ years and unclear if the success of pipeline can match the last 10 years of amazing history

    Pros

    fun, easy-going, goal-oriented, meaningful, relaxed, surrounded by very smart people, easy commute with the shuttles, really awesome.

    Cons

    The only real downside I saw was that if I weren't motivated I could've gotten away with hiding in a corner for years before anyone realized it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being awesome. Also, check the corners on occasion.


  2. Genentech is the best biotechnology company to work for in the Bay Area.

    Pros

    Genentech has the best scientists and researchers. Interacting with these colleagues is the best part about going to work here.

    Company generously rewards employees with solid, competitive pay and bonuses.

    Cons

    Certain departments are consistently overworked and need more people, more support.

    Advice to Management

    HR and senior management should do a better job of evaluating staffing and ensure that they have adequate people and talent for evolving project needs.
