Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Culture of focussing on unmet needs, smart co-workers, great benefits (including on-site child care and slightly discounted cafeterias), and good career mobility

Cons

Fair number of layers of bureaucracy have developed over the last 5+ years and unclear if the success of pipeline can match the last 10 years of amazing history
