    I worked at Genentech as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great name and great environment! The experience is invaluable on your resume! Managers allow you to be pretty independent with your project if you show them that you have the initiative and responsibility to carry yourself on your own in the lab.

    Cons

    Full-time positions are hard to come by but being contracted is a possibility if you make a good impression. Very hard to get an internship without an "in" or previous industry experience though...
