    Pros

    great reputation, unlimited resources, and working with talented people

    It is very stressful working as a postdoc in Genentech. The stress is not necessary from the boss, but probably comes from the initiatives to do great work.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, cafeteria, holiday parties were great. Unlimited resources to do science.

    Cons

    No career ladder or chance or move up. Scientists hired on the basis of prestigious publications not actual disease relevant research experience. Large egos hinder real progress. As an RA, I was told that I was not there to think, but only to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that everyone has something of value to contribute. Great ideas don't only come from Senior VPs.
