I worked at Genentech

Pros

Good, smart, knowledgeable people. Interesting work, improving patient lives. Great salary, competitive benefits. Solid communication. Overall a very good company to work for.

Cons

The company is still integrating work and systems from the Roche merger, creating some confusion and overlap. The highest growth in the San Francisco area is probably over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None.

    I have been working at Genentech

    Pros

    This is a very intellectually stimulating place to work. I am always learning something new and people are very willing to share information and ideas. Patients always come first which is an important guiding light for the company.

    Cons

    Opportunities for career growth are limited in some instances and in some parts of the company. Post-merger the opportunities for learning late stage drug development are limited within Genentech Research and Early Development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the focus on patients, on employees and on the science and Genentech will do well for the long haul.
