I worked at Genentech full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you are a regular full time employee, Genentech has great benenfits, generous time off and sick leave policies and many perks to engage employees ( weekly hoho's, department recognition events, Genentech gives back to the community events). The company is focused on improving the quality of lives of patients with serious diseases. It is very fulfilling work knowing you are positively impacting the lives of others.

Cons

Compensation is competitive and you can make more/money at other biotech/pharmaceutical companies, but the slightly lower salary at Genentech is offset by the benefit package.
The environment has been trending toward a more corporate feel ever since the Roche take over.

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

    Pros

    Pay is great, hours are great as well. For the most part, management is flexible. Affordable cafeterias, Genenbus.

    Cons

    contractors usually stay contractors, almost impossible to get a full time position especially in access solutions. Don't count on becoming permanent if you hired as a Reimbursement, FS or case manager position.

    Advice to Management

    Stop segregating contractors form full time employees
