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

    Pros

    - Interesting work
    - Committed people
    - Good benefits, although current FTEs complain they're going downhill

    Cons

    - Some Roche management is disconnected to the point of not acknowledging contractors' existence.
    -Roche management is too hierarchical. FTEs are "spanked" if they engage with anyone higher than their direct boss without permission.
    - Roche is hiring more and more contractors rather than invest in FTEs
    - Long-time employees are allowed to stagnate and underperform even if it causes chaos and dissatisfaction.
    - Roche management's idea of innovation is to cut costs and expect more.

    Advice to Management

    - If you're going to hire contractors as your workforce, utilize them!
    - Listen more and make real change without getting defensive.
    - Don't crush the innovation you acquired Genentech for.
