I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits, focus on employees and strong sense of mission to help patients. Great work environment.

Cons

Bureaucracy slows things down a bit. Too many committees needed Tom revies projects. This is more of a Roche legacy.

Advice to Management

Reduce the number of committees to expedite development.
