I worked at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Entrepreneurial, focus on patients and well-being of the employees. Work-life balance is rest assured unless you work on tech transfer projects. Opportunity to grow in the company is massive, especially after Roche took over

Cons

Unless you are in research and development, there is not much autonomy given. If you are persuasive enough, you can be granted side projects, which makes work would be much more interesting. As the company becomes bigger, bureaucracy is increasing.

Advice to Management

To perform more rigorous talent review and rewards those who truly add value

    I worked at Genentech as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Genentech really takes care of its employees, they have so many extra services that make life easier for employees. You will work with the best of the best in my opinion. Genentech is very dedicated to making sure employees grow in their careers. Campus is beautiful. Casual atmosphere is great.

    Cons

    The location can be difficult to get to by car, given Bay Area traffic. Especially, if you are coming from the East Bay. It is also a very large company.
