Fantastic internship program

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsSmart 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
