It can be easy to get lost in such a big company, hard to get your voice heard, can feel like a cog in a machine

    Not the old Genentech

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    Brilliant people; thoughtful, cutting edge science; great growth opportunities if you can find them; great company perks

    Cons

    Politics!!! Lack of career growth opportunities. Highly competitive, (at times) disrespectful and transactional culture. Many in senior positions are out for themselves and will step on you or throw you under the bus to move up or make themselves look good. Can take years to establish yourself and gain enough visibility to be given career growth opportunities (this was not the case with pre-Roche Genentech); some bad department-level management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assure career growth at all job levels; closely evaluate mid level management; discourage disrespectful behavior - it's more than about managing up well

    I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to meet new connecions, get mentoring and build your career.

    Cons

    A BS/BA is almost worthless (we all know that)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider those with BS/BA for transfer to other departments.
