    Pros

    Genentech is laid back and a fun place to work. People work hard, but don't live stressful lives. As a co-op, I was given meaningful projects and even got the chance to get my name of a paper. the Genenbuses made it easy to live in the city and the free muni passes made it easy/free to use public transportation. The lunches are really good and affordable. It was nice to never have to worry about packing a lunch.

    Cons

    There isn't too much that I can say about my experience that was bad. There wasn't enough space for the co-ops/interns in my department, so some had to make their lab their desk. I was also there when Roche took over, so I only saw the beginnings of what was to come, change-wise. I've heard that they've made an effort to preserve the culture.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is what makes Genentech so great, so please don't change things too much.


  2. "4 months later..."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    More perks than I can count with my fingers. Passionate and smart people but they are lousy drivers though.

    Cons

    Roch took-over shrunk some of the "great" perks to "ok" perks.

    Advice to Management

    some good things shouldn't have a "cap"; rather they should have a "range".
