    Pros

    The company is solid and has a great reputation. I feel that management is open and willing to listen to advice and comments from employees. The workload is manageable and work-life balance is preserved.

    Cons

    Processes and operating procedures are constantly in flux and have been since the Roche buyout. The company is unfortunately moving away from its entrepreneurial roots and more toward the embracing of a stodgy pharma mentality. This is really hurting employee morale, and many senior people have left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Preserve Genentech's culture and keep processes in tact. Allow for employees to opt for reduced pay/reduced working hours instead of resorting to layoffs.

    Pros

    OK. Attempts made to keep people happy very dependent on what group you're in. And who it is that you report to.

    Cons

    Much more bureaucratic than it used to be. Groups are very silo'd, and sharing of information is limited at times and inconsistent, which can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    They should try to talk to members at all levels of the organization in all groups to get a solid feel for needs and attitude.
