    I worked at Genentech as a contractor

    Pros

    The people are smart and down to earth. The company provides its employees many great benefits and career development opportunities.

    Cons

    In order to get the most help from other departments, you really need to either have a large and solid network internally yourself or have access to someone who has such a network because he/she has been there for a while.

    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
