Pros

- Products, doing something that helps society - Good comp (though what you negotiate at the beginning will have a big impact but that's true for most companies) - Possibilities to learn and grow, also to go abroad - Mature organization - Genentech

Cons

- Promotions are not always happening based on actual skills and performance - As a result, working with some of the managers is challenging - Big corporation, meaning: has the advantages of it but also cons - procedures, processes, roles that could be cut with Occam's Razor, so be prepared for a lot of people approving/planning/executing everything - especially since it's in a highly regulated industry

Advice to Management

Make sure you always are promoting the people that indeed are the best ones for the job.

Pros

Great Products to work with. Compensation and allowances. Bonus. Was The Best Copmany to work for until 2012.

Cons

Career development depends on your personal relation with the management. Lack of honesty and transparency from the management. Vital decisions about your role and career are taken without discussing it with the employer. Lack of stability & high turn over since 2012. Lack of "genuine" diversity. Promotions are based on personal relataions, like & dislike, & not based on your performance and achievements. Lack of experience and maturity from certain employees at vital positions. Your "NATIONALITY" plays a big role in your development.
