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.

  • 401K Plan(108 comments)

    The best thing about their 401k is their yearly match.

  • Health Insurance(106 comments)

    Best: There are numerous options to choose from to cover your personal situation. Worst: Honestly can’t think of anything negative. Perhaps employee contribution could be lower.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(59 comments)

    The best thing is that you get 18 days off a year.

Many of the benefits are still better than other companies, however, as healthcare has gotten more expensive, the offerings have not been as good as they used to be. A lot more was covered even 5-10yrs ago.

Company cares about ensuring that you take your vacation. The 6 week sabbatical after 6 years is pretty great too.
