I worked at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart people, supportive workplace, ltos of resources to get your job done, Great focus on cross training. You can move around from group to group learning different skills as you go.

Cons

Micromanagement, over specialization of certain tasks, not enough freedom to work outside the lines. Fair amount of group think here, and sometimes you come across a party line that you have to repeat, even if you dont agree with it.
