    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Brilliantly educated minds in business, finance and science
    Casual attire with an intense passion for the patients
    Great perks for all levels
    Rotational programs, tuition reimbursements, they really want to develop strong employees
    Great pay (at least for an intern)

    Cons

    Some departments (finance) can be a bit up-tight about things like dress and behavior
    A fair amount of politicking, especially among managers.
    Frivolously spend money on perks which are designed to "boost morale"

    Advice to Management

    Trust your interns with substantial projects - compiling spreadsheets is fine, but don't micromanage us the whole time.
