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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Casual Intensity. Focus on Patients. Following the Science. Genentech is also a member of the Roche Group which gives it a global reach. Exciting to be expanding into China and Latin America.

    Cons

    At times too functionally siloed. Not convinced having too separate Research and Early Development organizations is economically prudent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to nurture Genentech's unique culture as part of the broader Roche Group. Expand the company's understanding of diversity to be broader than gender. Encourage and support global assignments in emerging markets.
