CTM (Former Employee), South San Francisco, CAAugust 4, 2015
I thought this place was different from other Biotechs. They work you to death and do not pay you well. Lots of politics for a small department in a big company. Top heavy.

Senior Meeting Associate (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAJuly 6, 2015
I love what I do at Genentech on a day-to-day basis. They are supportive of a work/life balance and the perks are excellent. In my department there is very little room to grow or advance and I feel that I have reached my full potential in this role.

Great work environment and culture
Commercial Bulk/Fill technician assigned (Former Employee), South San Francisco, CAJune 30, 2015
Pros: Coworkers felt like team mates
Genentech was a great company to work for since quality was engrained into the culture. The products that were released to the public were the purest and most potent form of medication available to patients in need. Standard Operating Procedures always preceded tasks which always made completing assignments and duties to a checklist always ensured product quality. Genentech has a great understanding of providing employees the opportunity to grow and excel. It was a an outstanding work environment where workspaces became teams and each coworker provided their strengths. The most enjoyable part of my experience working for Genentech was the ever changing and dynamic environment and the abilitiy to reach deadlines at the same time ensuring quality products.

A good manager can make this trial worthwhile, but a bad one...?
Safety Associate (Current Employee), san franciscoJune 24, 2015
Good people in general. Contractors treated as outcasts. Management is non-existent - they use staff to perform their duties. If you are an emotional robot, this might not be too horrible. Beautiful campus. Good attempts to be a Green company.
