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

Pros

Great co-workers, nearly unlimited resources, many opportunities for scientific collaboration and to learn new technical skills, excellent company to develop your early career as a scientist

Cons

Limited chances for advancement within the company especially if at a junior level or on the technical track. Management discourages employees in research arm from seeking opportunities within other parts of the company (commercial, clinical, etc.)

Recommends

    I have been working at Genentech as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Smart people, relaxed yet driven culture, awesome reputation in the industry, great company perks. In terms of larger biotech companies you can't really get better than Genentech when it comes to employee treatment.

    Cons

    Pace can be slow at times, slightly bureaucratic. Pay is also a bit less than industry competitors despite (or perhaps because of) the reputation.
