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 Management

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

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mostly good people and good perks, particularly in SF. Now that Genentech is part of the Roche group, there is more opportunities worldwide which is a good thing.

    Cons

    Not necessarily good at getting rid of poor performers. They somehow seem to linger on despite inadequate performance.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to move into leadership based on performance record, not who you know.
