I worked at Genentech as a contractor (More than a 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 Management

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

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

    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.
