Approves of CEO

I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great benefits (including long maternity leave), good team environment, flexibility with schedule, people are really passionate, intelligent and driven.

Cons

A lot of politics around talent review and promotions; need to go through many hoops to change processes, implement new ideas and change.

Advice to Management

Base talent review and promotion based on merit (and not on one person's experience)
