Our Benefits

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.

Current Principal Scientist in South San Francisco, CA, California

Significant expansion in the computational space. Relaxing workplace, never really get stressed from work. Currently 3-day-onsite per week, likely to gradually go back to 5-day-onsite per week. People are nice. Experienced scientists. If you are innovative and motivated, even a masters-level scientist can rise up the rank and be at the same table as the PhD-level scientists. Benefit is good. Holiday planning is stressful tho since we go with the Roche system - European style - we now have up to 30-days-per-year paid holidays, need to go on holidays even month to keep it from maxing out. Paid is among most competitive among big pharma in the area

Very generous benefits; not just traditional health, dental, and vision, but also things like mental health care/support (Lyra), parental support (Cleo), and wellness/self-care.
