I worked at Genentech as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Very sophisticated internship program that provides its participants with meaningful projects. Very welcoming environment for young people. Strong commitment to their mission statement and providing students with exposure across business areas.

Cons

Difficult to get "a foot in the door" as a university student who was looking for an opportunity with the firm.

    I worked at Genentech full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Interns are spoiled at Genentech. Though the pay isn't as competitive as other biotech companies for interns, interns get treated very well, and it's a great place to be.

    Cons

    Compared to biotech competitors such as Bayer and Novartis, the pay rate for interns at Genentech isn't as high.
