I have a challenging career and get to work with the most intelligent, down-to-earth, wonderful people.

Associate Scientist (Current Employee)
South San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Genentech full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat camaraderie on the team, casual attire (I get to wear jeans!!), fun events, and work that keeps me abreast of new science.

ConsI hear some managers can be a pain, but I love my own.

Advice to Senior ManagementNot from my own experience, but I hear that management could decrease "busy work".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
