I have been working at Genentech full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the perk are second to none such as the GenenBus.

    Cons

    The vertical movement is slower than a turtle. A decade between movements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research is the backbone of the company but pay does not reflect that
