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

Pros

Similar to many large companies where focus gets real tight as number of employees increases that is typical.
Bus service for workers is a strong benefit as well as the discounted cafeteria which is pretty good.

Cons

Contractors or temps are treated with less benefits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep doing a good job.

    I have been working at Genentech as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    GREAT experience, lot's of fun and challenging. People stay extremely spportive and really want you to do your best.
    People around you are all very smart.

    Cons

    People expect a lot from you and you really need to be focused the entire time, despite goodies and distractions. They are generally passive aggressive, so you should be aware that if you haven't met expectations, management be very unhappy with you, even if they won't say it explicitly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Job, means "Good Job", not see you later!

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smartest minds in the world about disease areas and a culture that is focused on helping patients and keeping employees happy; Lots of on-site amenities like a full gym, shuttles that bring you to work, subsidized cafeterias with multiple healthy, delicious options.

    Cons

    Have to be doing a new job for some time before being promoted to the new job title and receiving a salary increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more professional development opportunities for admins
