Suggestions for improvement

  • If your employees are screaming and yelling for help for resources and headcount using fact-based arguments to try to get their heads above water, do something about it in a timely manner. It's good business.

What I like about the company

You do feel a genuine impact on patients. I also met a few people there that I will call friends for life.

What I dislike about the company

Absolutely no work/life balance and the culture can be very toxic and unbearably political; It takes a lot of unfruitful and time-consuming meetings just to decide who to send an email to.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More flexible work environments, better health benefits with the company paying more of the financial burden. more access to onsite child care for lower income employees.

What I like about the company

The company really tries to make employees feel part of something important in the community and in the world. Genentech is the very first biotech company and as such is responsible for some of the biggest innovations in medicine including the discovery of humanized insulin and the first monoclonal antibody used to treat cancer, Avastin.

What I dislike about the company

Middle management needs help in making sure that employees are treated fairly and receive promotions and opportunities on a fair basis.
