I worked at Genentech full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Culture of focussing on unmet needs, smart co-workers, great benefits (including on-site child care and slightly discounted cafeterias), and good career mobility

Cons

Fair number of layers of bureaucracy have developed over the last 5+ years and unclear if the success of pipeline can match the last 10 years of amazing history

Recommends

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A place that values individuality and cares about the patient and employee. Culture and benefits are pretty good. Lots of room for growth.

    Cons

    Everything used to be better. Roche is slowly killing what made Genentech so special. I'm not as happy as I used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight the Roche penny pinching and bring the fun culture back
