Current Contractor - Manufacturing Technician
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Was "plucked" out of the veterans needing to apply their military expertise to a strong company.
Very easy hiring process. (I must have absolutely nailed the video interview because 2 short months went by and they offered me a technician position.
*note* I have not started working yet. Still doing paperwork/background etc.

Cons

Not sure if I work "FOR" Genentech or "AT"Genentech as a contractor. (I know it sounds bad that I don't know but I was hired very easily).

    "In business for life", making a difference in patients' lives, fun co-workers, plenty of opportunity, great perks/benefits, booming business, work-life balance.

    Cons

    Too much work/ too little resources, tightening budgets, no communication regarding small layoffs, increasingly political landscape, nearly constant access to junk food(!).

    Advice to Management

    Don't lay people off in 2011 if you're planning on increasing headcount in 2012, 2013, and 2014!!!
