Fun company, but tough enviornment

Former Contractor - Compensation Consultant in South San Francisco, CA
Former Contractor - Compensation Consultant in South San Francisco, CA

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.

    Pros

    Contractors work alongside FTEs performing the same duties; they're treated no differently, and they receive the same training.

    Cons

    Twice I applied for open positions, doing the same job as what I was doing as a contractor. Both times the jobs went to FTEs in other departments, who then had to be trained up.
