    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are still great. Pipeline is full (for now).

    Cons

    Constant state of re-org inhibits engagement of employees.
    Leadership is lacking
    Can't make decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop it with the re-org and let people get on with the business of innovation.
