    I have been working at Genentech as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Intern program leaders were very friendly and helpful, on-boarding process went very smoothly
    -The software development team I worked with was friendly, supportive, helped me outline an ambitious but manageable project, and let me work pretty autonomously
    -Opportunity to attend interesting speakers, career development presentations, and fun events (especially the Genentech gives back concert, which interns are invited to with a +1)
    -Awesome cafeterias with subsidized prices
    -Competitive pay plus a relocation salary
    -GRide program made commuting and getting around campus extremely convenient, also refunded and public transportation costs

    Cons

    -Mostly a benefit, but interns do need to take initiative in terms of designing the content and scope of their project
    -Because of the company's size and some complications due to the Roche merger, the management hierarchy can be a bit messy and some productivity and focus gets lost in the process
    -In order to get an idea of what other departments are like you have to be self motivated to branch out and explore different parts of campus, meet other interns, and get involved
    -My team specifically worked from the Gateway campus, which was somewhat isolated from the main campus

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, I really agree with and appreciate the company's values
