I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Pros of working here is that you get access to top talent and technologies. Everyone here is so incredibly smart that a lot of ideas can be casually developed if you establish good relationships.

A lot of opportunities to learn and grow as well as get your foot in the door.

Beautiful campus, a lot of convenient services like dining hall and shuttles

An abundance of social opportunities hosted by the company.

Cons

Seems like your degree does have some weight in your career development. People with masters develop their careers on one track while scientist do so on another. I think its rare for masters students to jump onto the phd track. Not sure about this thought.

Expectations are high and if you don't have the personality for it, the pressure could break you like an egg. Or a glass cup. Or a plastic chair for children.
