A good company, fast paced, goal oriented

Manager (Former Employee) South San Francisco, CA (US)

ProsGood, smart, knowledgeable people. Interesting work, improving patient lives. Great salary, competitive benefits. Solid communication. Overall a very good company to work for.

ConsThe company is still integrating work and systems from the Roche merger, creating some confusion and overlap. The highest growth in the San Francisco area is probably over.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Dissatisfied, political, painful integration still to come

    Development (Current Employee) South San Francisco, CA (US)

    I have been working at Genentech


    Pros: Location in California in relation to major city, good universities and academic locations, many products in pipeline as… Cons: Corporate politics have split company into competing factions with different priorities that increase inefficiencies and drug development timelines/costs, maintain divisions between Roche and GNE, and… Advice to Senior Management: Streamline the reporting structure so gRED and pRED are accountable to pMED or at least the same people to stop the infighting and pissing contests.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
