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

Pros

Excellent culture, really try to make work fun for the employees. Career and personal development are highly emphasized

Cons

Extremely competitive, moving up in company is difficult, interview process is beyond rigorous

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on development, but look beyond just how well someone fits the "mold" of how they should interview. There are lots of people who are great at their jobs that might not always say exactly what you are looking for in a 30 minute interview.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are rewarding and competitive, and Genentech continues to find ways to appreciate the contributions of employees. The culture is focused on the science, and I do believe that every employee cares about the patients.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to maintain an adequate work/life balance. This is pretty dependent on your immediate management. The culture overall encourages it, but it varies between departments.
