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.
Best - Sabbatical every 6 years. Worst - No pension
On-site dental, eye-care. Five story employee facility, college sized basketball court. Day-care options, and so much more
Health, Dental and Vision Insurance, Time off between Christmas and New Year's Day.
Excellent 401k and health care coverage. Great stock purchase plan discontinued
2 work from home days, company happy hours monthly.
Contractors receive no benefits nor are they invited to attend corporate functions
Benefits were great. Much better than I have seen at other places. Only negative is that the employees were having to pay a greater percentage of the benefits. But thats everywhere
Great benefits! Great 401K match and Roth 401K options
The health benefits were great. Genentech allotted a certain amount of money for my benefits and anything over that was deducted. This helped cut the cost of my health insurance. They had a lot of perks for their employees, such as, the yearly concert at AT&T park, shirts, weekly get togethers (hohos).
Contractors really get screwed compared to FTE's. No benefits at all. You have to pay to use the bus for transportation around the bay area, you cant go to all the company parties.
