    Approves of CEO

    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.
