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

Pros

Similar to many large companies where focus gets real tight as number of employees increases that is typical.
Bus service for workers is a strong benefit as well as the discounted cafeteria which is pretty good.

Cons

Contractors or temps are treated with less benefits.

Advice to Management

keep doing a good job.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still retaining some of the Genentech culture. Lot's of fun activities to show that the employer still cares about about the employees.

    Cons

    Hard to advance in your career. You get bogged down in your position the longer you have been there. Since it's Genentech they have tons of applicants for every position, it is a very competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Support jobs shares and rotations. Make that an accepting culture in not just a few department, but across the board.
