Genentech is a great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA

ProsIf you are a regular full time employee, Genentech has great benenfits, generous time off and sick leave policies and many perks to engage employees ( weekly hoho's, department recognition events, Genentech gives back to the community events). The company is focused on improving the quality of lives of patients with serious diseases. It is very fulfilling work knowing you are positively impacting the lives of others.

ConsCompensation is competitive and you can make more/money at other biotech/pharmaceutical companies, but the slightly lower salary at Genentech is offset by the benefit package.
The environment has been trending toward a more corporate feel ever since the Roche take over.
