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.

    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 Management

    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.

  2. Great place for interns

    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.
