    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to do good science
    Benefits:gride, concierge service, occasional ho-hos

    Cons

    No work life balance, zero rewards and recognition for hardwork, no transparency in decision making. Employees who work very hard are either not rewarded or penalised for speaking the truth whereas incompetent sycophants are promoted. The senior management is only interested in looking out for itself. The politics is so bad that you have to watch every step of your day to day activites. If you cannot be a suck up, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide recognition to those who truly deserve it. Grt rid of middle management, they are the worst.
