I worked at Genentech full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Experience forking at Genentech, Inc (before Roche) is exciting and and intellectually stimulating
Once almighty Genentech used to be the best company in all aspects - culture, people, science, benefits.

Cons

Bad management? What makes people to become "bad managers"? May be it's the corporate culture that does the trick?
Still has smart people, but those who can are leaving...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave the company alone. Let scientists do science. As if they gonna listen
