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 full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Admire the people I work with and enjoy working with them. Work is challenging yet rewarding. Comp and benefits together are fantastic.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is fine, but don't come here expecting it will be handed to you. Instead, you have to own it and drive it and ensure your manager supports it. That said, it's a competitive place and it's difficult to differentiate your performance and advance by just "doing an OK job."

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, stock, work-life balance, smart people.

    Cons

    Cultural friction with Swiss headquarters, TRAVEL, constant change in efforts to integrate 2 companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of grooming and promoting from within Genentech rather than allowing dysfunctional Roche management to stay in place.
