  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Clinical Coordinator in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Clinical Coordinator in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue 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.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in South San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in South San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Genentech full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people. They value their employees. You work hard, but feel appreciated every step of the way. Your work literally is helping patients live longer, better lives. And the future looks bright for Genentech and Roche thanks to an innovative product pipeline developed by Genentech scientists.

    Cons

    Roche's acquisition of Genentech has hampered the employee-centric culture somewhat, but it's still a really a terrific place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work hard to maintain your great culture of putting employees first.
