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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    High-performance culture
    Company cares about its employees and patients
    Promotes diversity and inclusion more than any employer I have ever worked for

    Cons

    A lot of unneccessary bureaucracy especially when dealing with corporate functions
    Less altruistic since Roche took over
    Difficult to move up from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change HR practices that make it difficult for people to move up as quickly from within. So many people leave and then come back, getting hired at a salary and level they would have had to wait years to achieve from within.

PROS: people focused, absolutely, visionaries in adapting future technologies today (ahead of competition); innovative approach to people development; great compensation; great management team

    Cons

    - some sluggish software -

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
