"Great people"Oct 14, 2020

Former Contractor - Administrative Assistant

I worked at Genentech for less than a year

Pros

Great people. Great company. Great benefits. Constantly trying to improve work life balance.

Cons

Nothing major because I had a great department

Former Intern - SWE Intern

I worked at Facebook for less than a year

Pros

Great way to learn a lot about SWE full time position and just to learn some skills. They have so many resources available for you and a 1:1 mentorship program so you are supported throughout the... internship.

Cons

Honestly not that many. A lot of people have a bad impression of Facebook which is somewhat warranted, but I think they do not understand that Facebook has actually done a lot to confront all of... these problems and are actively trying to be better. Also that there is no clear cut solution on what to do.
