Great Products, Made by Great People. But The Work Place Has Changed

N/A (Former Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

I worked at Genentech full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat products that help many people
Generous to patients
Rewarding when you meet the patients
Well known and good to have on your resume

ConsSince Roche took over:
Employees are overloaded; more work, less people
Less room for advancement, positions not being refilled
Benefits have been diminished, pay levels have decreased

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
