    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 have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    High-performance culture
    Company cares about its employees and patients
    Promotes diversity and inclusion more than any employer I have ever worked for

    Cons

    A lot of unneccessary bureaucracy especially when dealing with corporate functions
    Less altruistic since Roche took over
    Difficult to move up from within.

    Advice to Management

    Change HR practices that make it difficult for people to move up as quickly from within. So many people leave and then come back, getting hired at a salary and level they would have had to wait years to achieve from within.
