    Good Company, a lot of politics, and sure helps if you speak German and have a PhD.

    I worked at Genentech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great people.

    Cons

    Longtime GNE employees think very highly of themselves, are defensive about providing historical information and are not open to new ideas. Functional managers disregard contributors investment in a project and change assignments at will. The patients who supposedly are so important to the company would be appalled to see swag that comprises entire wardrobes of some employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roche merger is a good opportunity to get rid of dead wood.
