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

Pros

Benefits is the number one pro. If you can hang in there the sabbatical is wonderful. The commuter programs and options are also very good.

Cons

Bonus money does not get distributed fairly. There is a re-org every four to six months. You spend a lot of time waiting for the other shoe to drop. Poor at recognition of those who do the work. Much of the management is inconsistent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start recognizing your people publicly and financially.
