Pros

The company has a great mission and there is a high focus on employee training and development. It is a great place to work. The salaries and bonuses are excellent.

Cons

After the Roche merger a lot of inefficiencies were introduced. The cultures did not mesh well and as a result the drive and passion of the old Genentech is diminished.

Advice to Management

Listen more. You have good ideas that get lost as they trickle down the organization.

    Pros

    - Pays really well, from contractors to full time employment. - They truly push for the "everyone is family" agenda - Goal is a relaxed environment. - Always having patients in mind

    Cons

    - Fast Paced, sometimes too edgy where no department can catch up and fall to the way side. - Roche-Owned, and Roche is not known for their budget and spendings - Too political where they're willing to get good people, and hurt a department just because they don't like them.
