    I worked at Genentech

    Pros

    Casual jean-wearing culture, smart team. Fair pay and good benefits, great work/life balance. Yes, to those who are wondering...should I apply for a job. Culture supports those with advanced degrees, yet lack experience (you know who you are :) and this is a door opener for those with degree or academic backgrounds.

    Cons

    Inward culture, sometimes misses the mark in reality of industry. Extremely difficult to get in without inside friend, family member; leadership tends to hire and promote those they know. Extremely competitive promotion culture...a saying from the game of thrones captures it well, you either win or lose.
