    I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, bonuses, room for growth if you have a mindful manager, great cafeterias, nice gym with lots of classes, plenty of time off with vacation & sick days.

    Key Performance Initiatives and metrics are unrealistic and can be a guarantee of failure. Some managers are not equipped to manage people.

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

    Pros

    Genentech is a great place with friendly multiculuture working environment. The company cares employees so much and provides good benefit to all including intern, contractors and regular employees.

    Cons

    The only thing I am still trying to get used to is the changing schedule of each project. However, it is the common way for a big company.
