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

Pros

It is one of the best pharmaceutical company in the U.S currently. Company is doing really well so the working environment, benefit are all quite good. Company, at least the department I worked at really focus on work-life balance, so it is pretty laid back working there. I barely saw people working overtime.

Cons

Because it is a very big company, lots of rules and training about safety and other stuff, it takes quite some of time. And you kind of get refined in your own little area, work is quite routine. Lack of chance to learn things out of your group and department

    Recognition for a job well-done

    At times, too much focus on non-business related celebrations... need to focus more on the business and work at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the recognition and awards incentive.
