I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)
Innovative and casually intense culture, with a highly research and intellectually focused organization motivated by improving the lives of our patients.
Genentech, now owned by Roche, seems to be becoming more and more of a temporary employer with a strong contractor force. There is a divide, culturally, between the contract workforce and the permanent employees that is more prominent in some sectors than others

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Genentech (Redwood City, CA).
A group of 30 to 50 candidates are invited to an event that will usually last five to six hours. All candidates are assigned seats at several tables then given a number of tasks to perform while the hiring managers and several staff members observe. Then five minute one on one meetings with he hiring managers takes place after which you may leave.
There is no negotiation. They give you an offer letter and you take it or leave it.
