Cutting edge science with great benefits

Research Associate (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood salaries, collaborative environment, the RAs are still getting stocks/options from Roche (parent company), awesome benefits and a robust pipeline.

ConsThere is an attempt for "360 reviews" where the employees can review their boss. In many cases, this has led to retribution from the boss -- Upper management needs to think if the benefits outweigh the costs here.

Advice to Senior ManagementRequire all managers, especially the newly minted ones, to have training in how to manage effectively.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
