Culture at the HTO site has steadily declined since I began working there in 2018. Upper management is disconnected from the difficulties the frontline faces and attempts to placate the workers is tone-deaf at best. In my current role I am compensated approximately $10/hr less than I would be in another industry despite getting constant emails from the CEO that we are turning profits and experiencing sales growth. Unless you are unemployed and strapped for money, I would apply elsewhere.

Genentech is in a sweet spot where innovation and legacy projects co exist and are both considered important components for the development of great medicine. They do prioritize speed beyond anything else due to the insane costs associated to developing medicine.

They’ve been trying to run the plant lean more and more since I’ve started working here 5 years ago, and I feel like the morale continues to drop. Engagement doesn’t seem to be a big factor anymore. It’s more about cross training and utilizing the workforce to the fullest.
