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 Management

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

    Pros

    They select some of the top talent in the industry. It is a wonderful environment, full of brilliant, dedicated people that inspire you to be the best.

    Cons

    The consistent striving for "operations excellence" can leave one concerned about if and when their job will be outsource. Work life balance is also often lacking - there's a reason they say "A year at Genentech is is two years some place else." You will definitely learn a lot!
