Still a remarkable place to be.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Genentech

ProsMost productive research organization in the industry. Pipeline is rich across oncology and developing in immunology and neuroscience. Culture emphasizes focus on patients. Beautiful location. Great perks. Smart, committed colleagues.

ConsIntegration with Roche people and systems have made some things more complicated/convoluted. Organization has lost that swift and agile feel.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
