I worked at Genentech as a contractor (less than a 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 an intern (less than a 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.

    I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Was "plucked" out of the veterans needing to apply their military expertise to a strong company.
    Very easy hiring process. (I must have absolutely nailed the video interview because 2 short months went by and they offered me a technician position.
    *note* I have not started working yet. Still doing paperwork/background etc.

    Cons

    Not sure if I work "FOR" Genentech or "AT"Genentech as a contractor. (I know it sounds bad that I don't know but I was hired very easily).
