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.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, cafeteria, holiday parties were great. Unlimited resources to do science.

    Cons

    No career ladder or chance or move up. Scientists hired on the basis of prestigious publications not actual disease relevant research experience. Large egos hinder real progress. As an RA, I was told that I was not there to think, but only to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge that everyone has something of value to contribute. Great ideas don't only come from Senior VPs.

    I have been working at Genentech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A place that values individuality and cares about the patient and employee. Culture and benefits are pretty good. Lots of room for growth.

    Cons

    Everything used to be better. Roche is slowly killing what made Genentech so special. I'm not as happy as I used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Fight the Roche penny pinching and bring the fun culture back
