I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good salaries, collaborative environment, the RAs are still getting stocks/options from Roche (parent company), awesome benefits and a robust pipeline.

Cons

There is an attempt for "360 reviews" where the employees can review their boss. In many cases, this has led to retribution from the boss -- Upper management needs to think if the benefits outweigh the costs here.

Advice to Management

Require all managers, especially the newly minted ones, to have training in how to manage effectively.
