    Anybody know about the portfolio rotation programs at pharma companies? Specifically curious about Genentech, gilead, and I think Merck also has one. I’m curious what makes a good candidate (aside from having an advanced degree). Is having a consulting background a plus? Thanks in advance!

      Pros

      great benefits, great core values & mission, great products

      Cons

      very big now, more formal and structured under Roche; more monolithic and corporate driven by Europe; big enough to find plentiful opportunities worldwide to try out and find what you really really like and then pursue-many many options.

      Pros

      Great benefits. Pretty campus. Name recognition.

      Cons

      Genentech was a place to make important innovative medicines. Once it bacame part of Roche, it now seems much more focused on political correctness. Below senior management, don't expect to be fast tracked if you are white and/or male. Pay is competitive, but slightly below other Bay Area companies.
