    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the perk are second to none such as the GenenBus.

    Cons

    The vertical movement is slower than a turtle. A decade between movements.

    Advice to Management

    Research is the backbone of the company but pay does not reflect that

    Stop it with the re-org and let people get on with the business of innovation.
