    The "old Genentech" was the best company in the world. The "new Genentech" is a shadow of its former self.

    Pros

    Great products that helped people with serious diseases Great people who cared about their jobs Old Genentech management created a culture that encouraged innovation and rewarded its employees

    Cons

    New management has slowly destroyed what made Genentech special New management has replaced the biotech model with a big Pharma model and it is not working

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what made Genentech great.


  2. Great experience, but impossible to get a permanent job at.

    Pros

    Great pay for your time, good food available.

    Cons

    Absolutely no way to get a permanent position.

    Advice to Management

    Temps are just as valuable as your permanent employees, but I can't fault you for wanting cheap labor in the industry.
