    I have been working at Genentech full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Genentech is an excellent place to work. If you become a full time employee and are promoted to a blue badge the opportunities simply open up. Immediately you have incredible healthcare benefits, development opportunities, bonuses, and other corporate rewards. Even if you are working from home partially or full time you are supplied with great equipment including a sit to stand desk, high end monitor, and chair. Genentech really shows that it cares about its employees and how they are doing. It strives to see its employees prosper, grow, and thrive. It is an excellent place to work and I look forward to serving here for a large portion of my life.

    Cons

    At first Genentech can be intimidating. Being a green badge (contractor) and attempting to mix with blue badges (FTEs) can be difficult. FTE positions are fairly few and far between. But if one does come up you are encouraged to apply and are always pushed to take chances which is great. The contractor/FTE barrier is really the only tough part, but if you can get past that your potential is almost infinite. Even if you don't get an FTE position and your contract ends, working at Genentech teaches you a lot of valuable skills.

    The people are wonderful and it’s a great place to learn new areas of interest. The best of everything.
