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.

    Opportunity for cross functional work if you put it on your development plan.

    Some departments are overworked while others maintain a good work-life balance.
    Decision making seems slower after the Roche takeover.
    Some great managers but there are a slew of not so great ones.
