Pros

Benefits are great and team effort on projects that gives energy to all those involved

Cons

intense work and attention to detail of utmost importance - longer hours than some jobs but the benefits outweigh that factor

Advice to Management

Hopefully company is continuing the same was before they were bought out by Roche. Lots of collaboration and most people seem to respect others in different parts of the company.

    Pros

    The work is challenging and there is a lot of it, but that speaks to the quality of research and a very healthy portfolio. The quality of employees that work at Genentech is very high. I am excited to go to work every day and learn new things.

    Cons

    There is a LOT of work. Contractors are not treated as well as they used to be. Advancement opportunities are low for employees without advanced degrees. Are there people in management positions with only BS degrees? Yes, but they have been with the company 10+ years, pre-Roche.

    Advice to Management

    Recent limitations on the information that can be shared with contractors really limits the company. Being treated as only an extra pair of hands to follow directions is an expensive waste of talent that both hurts our company and the contractors that work with us.

  2. Best Place to work...period!
