I have been working at Genentech as an intern for less than a 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.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Sincere, hardworking and knowledgeable colleagues that make team work very enjoyable

    Cons

    Inexperienced middle management, lots of politics and gossip, it will be a struggle for a real work life balance with resource constraints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Demand accountability of your management team.
