    Pros

    GNF is a fine place to work. Good benefits, reasonable pay, and the "possibility" to do some great research . But your boss makes a huge difference because upper management hasn't learned to deal with personnel issues effectively now that GNF is 500+ employees. The drug discovery process at GNF is very productive so you can learn a lot in an environment that feels semi-academic.

    Cons

    GNF is cramped - don't expect your own office. It is very multi-cultural (high percentage of asians) so expect a group-think mentality and less personal recognition. Chances to work outside of assigned area are few.

    Advice to Management

    Place workers on assignments they are interested in- you will get 10X more productivity.

    Pros

    Considering the biotech market in SD area is actually shrinking, GNF is probably the only a few places if you are interested in doing science in an industry setting.

    Cons

    Management is messy. Both upper and lower management show no respect to people work under them. As a technican, don't expect you will learn here unless you are very lucky to work for a nice boss. Things like to be kept as secret, people are expected to work in dark.

    Advice to Management

    Pls show some respect to people work for you, otherwise don't hire them. Learn some upper management skill.
