    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
