"Amazing culture"Jan 26, 2021

Current Employee - Intern

I have been working at Genentech full-time

Pros

Very amazing colleagues, a lot of opportunities for engagements and growth. There's a lot of interns and not as many entry-level roles, so it could be competitive to land a job afterward, Many... converted into contractors

Cons

Besides the fact that it was virtually due to COVID, I can't think of anything else

Current Employee - Research Associate-2

I have been working at Illumina full-time for more than a year

Pros

Progressive company that actually cares about it's employees. Work is impactful and meaningful. Positive atmosphere, fast paced work environment. Work life balance is great. The Madison site is a... particularly awesome place to work!

Cons

Need to be ready for constant change.
