Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

    Leadership is lacking

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