    I have been working at Genentech as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of stretch tasks available for development even if a contactor. Must be willing to see opportunities.

    Cons

    Not a lot of FTE openings

    Advice to Management

    Work on keeping talented contractors

    Pros

    Brilliant people; thoughtful, cutting edge science; great growth opportunities if you can find them; great company perks

    Cons

    Politics!!! Lack of career growth opportunities. Highly competitive, (at times) disrespectful and transactional culture. Many in senior positions are out for themselves and will step on you or throw you under the bus to move up or make themselves look good. Can take years to establish yourself and gain enough visibility to be given career growth opportunities (this was not the case with pre-Roche Genentech); some bad department-level management

    Advice to Management

    Assure career growth at all job levels; closely evaluate mid level management; discourage disrespectful behavior - it's more than about managing up well
