I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

"In business for life", making a difference in patients' lives, fun co-workers, plenty of opportunity, great perks/benefits, booming business, work-life balance.

Cons

Too much work/ too little resources, tightening budgets, no communication regarding small layoffs, increasingly political landscape, nearly constant access to junk food(!).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lay people off in 2011 if you're planning on increasing headcount in 2012, 2013, and 2014!!!
