I worked at Genentech as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Exposure to an exciting company in a cutting edge industry. Lots of very smart and driven people. Great food options in the company cafeteria.

Cons

Pressure to work long hours, which is the expected norm. Not the most collegial environment. Finger pointing and assigning blame when things go wrong.

    I worked at Genentech as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary, benefits and work shuttle.

    Cons

    Absolutely no communication with the contract staff. Furthermore, employees and magagers were quite rude to the contract employees - utter lack of respect and very unprofessional. Regular employees and managers do not adhere to a schedule. I am very punctual and am never late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a course in how to be professional and treat your employees with respect.

    I worked at Genentech as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone that I met was friendly, helpful, and very intelligent without fail. They are passionate about their work and go above and beyond the call of duty. An excellent place to work.

    Cons

    Like any large company, Genentech has its fair share of bureaucracy and red tape to navigate through. The managers are good though, and don't micromanage or act as roadblocks.
