Pros

Great products that make a difference in people's lives, smart, interesting, fun people, company clearly values its employees and takes good care of them, very science and patient-driven, great perks and lovely campus.

Cons

Some managers are inexperienced at giving feedback, not always enough interdepartmental communication - you may find out that your project is a re-inventing of something another team has done previously.

Advice to Management

Don't let Roche acquire you!

    Pros

    For some, flexible hours, great benefits, working in a positive environment with great people. Onsite healthcare, daycare, beautiful campus make Genentech even more magical.

    Cons

    Some areas "look down" upon others, and many employees feel they don't get respect without an advanced degree. Many of the things that make Genentech a great place to work (such as onsite child care, weekly parties and celebrations, etc.) can only be taken advantage of by certain subsets of the population. If you are not in a position to benefit from these things, they mean nothing. If you are, though, they can make Genentech the best place to work in this country- period.

    Advice to Management

    Genentech is a great company as envisioned by two great men. two guys who wanted to do something new and spectacular and address medical issues to help people, not just make money. We should honor them by making sure that patient focus is in the forefront of what we do every day, not just what we say everyday.
