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.

Recommends

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for 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.)
