Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Pays well, long list of benefits, some very smart co-workers

Cons

political correctness, extremely long hours all the time, burnt-out workers, little or no work-life balance; management either living in la-la land or just don't care.

Advice to Management

To quote my director: " If you don't have a solution, do not complain!" Do not dismiss worker complaint so easily. Do not start a witch-hunt when worker is already over-worked, under pressure or are unhappy. When workers complain; it's time to identify what's not working instead of asking workers to come up with solution to the cause of burn outs. Happy workers are productive workers.
