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

Pros

Great mission; solid benefits; challenging work; beautiful campus - only a few of the many reasons this is a great place to work.

Cons

High regulatory scrutiny means the pace of change is slow and innovation is difficult. This is no different than the rest of the Pharmaceutical industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Simplify decision-making and governance: the lack of clarity can stifle progress.

    Pros

    Amazing products, Great teams, but competition is strong for promotion. If you're looking to learn about the industry, you can't find a getter place. Work life balance is always a challenge.

    Cons

    Because of the quality of the recruitment, current employees face stiff competition for promotion. But, if you're willing to work hard, and have a good head on your shoulders, the sky is the limit.
