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

Pros

Generally allows for flexible schedules. Great collaboration focused objective, genuine people. Company is very stable, strong pipeline and people oriented.

Cons

high expectations, resources are not well integrated. Large groups and global presence makes it difficult to induce change quickly and effectively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be clear on objectives. Focus on a few items at a time that you want to have the organization accomplish in a short period of time. Don't over complicate. Figure out how to accomplish things at the site level globally vs at the global level at every site.

    I worked at Genentech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, open communication, wonderful benefits, wonderful colleagues

    Cons

    Career stagnation. If you get pigeon holed as an average contributor early, you don't get projects that allow you to stretch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of talent that only wants a bit of challenge, or maybe a mentor.
