      Benefits are pretty great but not as great compared to large tech companies in the Bay Area. Focus on patients.


      People cannot provide constructive feedback. Feedback is either completely destructive or non existent. Leadership lack vision and the ability to make decisions bc of the layers of hierarchy and analysis paralysis. Most people managers aren’t in those positions based on experience and/or potential but because they outlasted others. It’s so decentralized, you spend most of your day talking to 20 people to find the next 20 with some piece of the information you need. There’s a complete lack of process or efficient operations. The average tenure is 10+ years and not in a good way. People get comfortable and find ways to coast because they have institutional knowledge and that’s their currency. OR they’re completely overworked and scared that their group will go through “transformation”. The company talks about its commitment to diversity but won’t commit to hiring diverse talent. Genentech leans into hiring many contractors who work just as hard as full time blue badge employees and can’t get converted for years. There aren’t that many entry level talent. Why?

        The benefits are great and the perk are second to none such as the GenenBus.


        The vertical movement is slower than a turtle. A decade between movements.
