I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Aiding people with cancer that are desperately seeking help and hope. Working with great people across all departments. The science and technology. The benefits are very good. Genentech's unique culture. Working for an innovative company with vision.

Cons

If you leave, no other company will measure up.

    Pros

    The companies research and products save lives... They are extremely innovative. The most brilliant group of people I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Constantly striving for innovation caused innovation for innovation's sake. That did not always serve the greater purpose. There was an abundance of achievers and a lack of people who were engaged in doing work. There is an aweful hazing ritual to tear down new talent. It was horrendous to experience and then heart breaking to watch as new people joined the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on accountability and the multiple levels of delegation that occur. Implement an anti-bullying at work program.
