I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Genentech is an innovative company that continues to attract very talented people. Patients are at the center of everything and this drives decision making. There is a focus on employee engagement with many great perks such as the gym, onsite car detailing, onsite dentist, onsite haircuts, laundry service, etc. The campus is gorgeous and a new environmentally friendly building is under construction.

Cons

Work-life balance can be challenging. Long hours particularly for people who have to conduct regular business with other countries (i.e., early morning meetings and/or late evening calls)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on providing tools to assist with balancing work and life.

    I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Love the people I work with, they make it a pleasure to come to work.

    Cons

    I'm a contractor and this department it's next to impossible to become a full time regular employee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about "head count" issues. Seems counter intuitive to spend 6 month training someone only to keep them for a 18 months and start the process all over again.
