    I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong brand and reputation, opportunities for training

    Cons

    Highly political, difficult to achieve any career growth, much bureaucracy. Many of the bright and dynamic people who started the company have moved on.

    Advice to Management

    Consider promoting from the inside and reward those who get things done, instead of politicos

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

    Pros

    great benefits, good pay, great name and solid products

    Cons

    on commercial side of company, its very cut throat. can't trust anyone. a very conniving culture. people back stab others all the time.

    Advice to Management

    stop perpetuating a sick culture. none of the leadership is admirable. they are all too busy managing up and not instilling any sort of passion and goodwill with their subordinates.
