I worked at Genentech as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Good people, good food and good work environment. There is definitely a lot of great people working here.

Cons

There was a distinct culture and air about those who are fully benefitted from the contractors and the consultants. Management would incentivize contractors with job interviews to ensure that they would continue doing a good job, but they can be very hierarchical so that it makes employees disgruntled with why some of the best talent isn't retained.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure to hire and retain good talent, and be transparent about policies.
