    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to work. Still have decent biotechnology culture. New ideas are well supported. Pretty campus.

    Cons

    Have gotten so big that productivity went down. Great minds have left for greener pasture. Needs a bit of overhaul to stay ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Things need to change that will encourage innovation for us to stay ahead of game. Need new blood. Clean house to increase productivity.
