I have been working at Genentech

Pros

Great opportunity to learn. For self-starters, a great environment to be on your own to get things done. No micromanagement.

Cons

Some weak middle management left bad, toxic apples in some departments. As long as you can avoid the toxic apples, your experience will be golden.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be afraid to get rid of bad apples individually, regardless of their tenure and knowledge.

    I worked at Genentech

    Pros

    This is a great place to do research as a postdoc and to get exposure to high quality science and how it's connected to therapeutic development.

    Cons

    As a postdoc, it is critical to work with a mentor that will provide guidance for working on a project that can be published, something that can be difficult depending on where you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be a more active role of the postdoc organizing committee to ensure that the postdocs are working on high quality projects that fit within the goals of the postdoc program.

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    Work hours very flexible. You can do as much or as little as you wish. Co-workers are friendly and the company does do a pretty good job at keeping the old Genentech tradations alive, like Ho-Ho's

    Cons

    Roche merger making Genentech different - no visioin for promotion opportunities, this can be tough. Work is easy - not very technically challenging. Often times, management is not engaged in what you are doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more flexibility for Genentech employees to be given expat assignments - since we are now a "global" company - quit bringing all your favorites from Basel and putting them in senior leadership positions - give that opportunity to some Genentech folks - and stop with all the Class A B/S.
