I worked at Genentech as an intern for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.
