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

    Pros

    Generous benefits including perks like awesome gym and great cafeterias.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance. Competitive environment (instead of collaborative). It has become bogged down in the corporate, profit-driven structure that is Roche. It used to be science and patient driven (and wildly profitable to boot).

    Advice to Management

    Spin Genentech back off as a stand alone company and attempt to return it to its former glory.
