    I have been working at Genentech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Not from my own experience, but I hear that management could decrease "busy work".

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Advancement opportunity, they listen to employees, paid sabbatical every six years.

    Cons

    For some employees, work-life balance leaves something to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within. Ensure work-life balance via comp-time following weekend work projects/meetings, having managers show it in their work behaviors, for example, stop e-mailing at 10-11:00 at night and on weekends.
