Employer Summary

Genentech is recognized for providing our employees with some of the most competitive and comprehensive benefits in the country. In 2015, we were ranked on FORTUNE Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" for the 17th consecutive year.

Far more important than public recognition, though, is the motivation behind making Genentech a truly great place to work. We believe that you, as an employee, matter above everything else. We back that statement up continuously with a unique approach to providing you with great benefits and valuable resources. Our benefits packages and resources are designed to support you in creating the life and work style that brings your best to your community, your family and Genentech's mission of addressing significant unmet medical needs.

    Health insurance is very good. 401k contribution is high. vacation and sabbatical time off is strong. year end closing means Xmas off. On site haircuts. Vision and dental benefits.

    The benefits may sound great, but they'll fire you if you actually need to use the important benefits more than once. If you want to work for this company, only have one kid and make sure you save up lots of money since it will take months to get your pay once you start leave.

    sabbatical was an excellent offering but would have preferred more vacation every year

    All benefits at Genentech are great. Being an employee of this company comes with many perks. Health, dental, and vision are affordable compared to other companies.

    There are no benefits packages for contractors at Genentech

    Sabbatical every 6 years, matching 401K

  • Sep 10, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in South San Francisco, California

    Transportation to and from work is good. The rest of the benefits seem great on the surface, but many benefits are not really available or are inadequate.
