I have been working at Genentech as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

you get paid to ride their free shuttle, lots of benefits, weekly ice cream runs (as an intern), and great celebrations when they launch a new drug

Cons

you'll need at least a master's to get far in the company and ever since Roche acquired Genentech, there have been several major changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide your budgets and employee roles, encourage hiring young employees for energy, dynamics and flexibility, pay some heed to the contractors who work more than your regular (blue-badge) employees, review individual contributions before Commending Your Employees and be open minded in hiring (EEO policies)
