I worked at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart people, supportive workplace, ltos of resources to get your job done, Great focus on cross training. You can move around from group to group learning different skills as you go.

Cons

Micromanagement, over specialization of certain tasks, not enough freedom to work outside the lines. Fair amount of group think here, and sometimes you come across a party line that you have to repeat, even if you dont agree with it.

    Pros

    Strong Pipeline -- received two FDA approvals in less than 1 year for Perjeta and Kadcyla. Company takes the time to celebrate success.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done. A local news broadcast advertised hiring 600 positions to bridge that gap.

    Advice to Management

    Keep celebrating successes.
