Best Pharma Company I've Worked For

Clinical Coordinator (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsExcellent culture, really try to make work fun for the employees. Career and personal development are highly emphasized

ConsExtremely competitive, moving up in company is difficult, interview process is beyond rigorous

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on development, but look beyond just how well someone fits the "mold" of how they should interview. There are lots of people who are great at their jobs that might not always say exactly what you are looking for in a 30 minute interview.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
