Pros

Smart people, work hard, rewarding place to work. The goals of the company make it a rewarding place to work.

Cons

With the merger with Roche, Genentech is now part of a very large international organization. This creates challenges of working for an international organization.

Advice to Management

Genentech has a wonderful cultural and I hope that continues as the company moves into the future as a global leader.

    Pros

    The connection to patients irrespective of position makes the work rewarding. While salaries in some parts of the organization may be in decline employees are still well paid and have access to a wealth of benefits whether they realize it or not. Genentech's pipeline is unmatched in the industry, but will it continue with the change in environment and culture. There are still a lot of great, passionate, smart people at Genentech committed to doing what's right for patients.

    Cons

    having the right manager is key & unfortunately it's difficult to get from under a bad manager/leader
    work life balance is non-existent
    hiring and promotions are often not fair or transparent

    Advice to Management

    address why top performers are leaving
    pay attention to employee burn out

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    The people I think are the number one reason its a great place to work. They've got great benefits compared toother companies. And the pay is pretty good too. And you are working for a company with a purpose.

    Cons

    Its extremely fast paced and the line between work and home get very blurred. There is no possible way to complete your normal job in a 40 hour week. This is pretty normal and known through out the organization. It can get to be too much at times and a lot of people burn out.
