I worked at Genentech as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

I've worked at Genentech intermittently as a contractor after being there for many years as an employee. Yes, things have changed over the years, but overall it's still a great place to work with many perks.

Cons

It has the challenges of most large organizations now - additional bureaucracy, harder to navigate, but overall, it continues to be a great experience.

Advice to Management

Continue to empower employees and attend to culture!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, a lot of stability and a plethora of perks and benefits to being employed there. Definitely some cool people. A huge name in their field and a traditionally strong company.

    Cons

    Upon getting bought out by Roche in 2009/2010, the companies values shifted considerable. There was a huge amount of change and scaling back of company benefits. The workplace got much more rigid, formal and unfriendly.

    Advice to Management

    Micro-manage your employees less and listen to your employees.
