I have been working at Genentech full-time (more than a year)

Pros

great reputation, unlimited resources, and working with talented people

Cons

It is very stressful working as a postdoc in Genentech. The stress is not necessary from the boss, but probably comes from the initiatives to do great work.

    Current Intern - Anonymous Intern

    I have been working at Genentech as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    surrounded by top talent
    three weeks paid time off plus three weeks vacation
    stable
    gymnasium

    Cons

    Not very many opportunities for title promotion. You could be there for 20 years and only be promoted twice; there just aren't very many levels. There are plenty of opportunities for pay increases, however.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make time for feedback from lower-level employees; they often know about issues that are not obvious to upper mgmt
