I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

High growth, lots of opportunities

Cons

Soft skills are very important here. Not being well-versed in soft skills can get you into trouble with politics. A lot of managers aren't very well-qualified as people managers. Business processes can be lacking or incomplete.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a better job in hiring qualified people managers. Hold managers more accountable for their employee's performance.
