Sr. Multiple Sclerosis Thought Leader Liaison in San Francisco, CA
on January 24, 2023
Great company and culture but it is trying to find its way at a time of patent expiry for 3 major products. The company did a major field force restructure in 2019 which is proving to be very challenging and not as beneficial as hoped.

It’s not a bad job it could be exhausting sometimes I work 12 hour workdays and then I have to raise my two kids by myself so I am worn out pretty quickly once I get off work

Not a bad place to work for if you get with the right crew. Lots of opportunities for advancement once you get on full time. There is a reason people work there 30 years

Very good place to work if you’re just starting out in the business. Management is very important and accommodating to everyone. The benefits are incredible

Genentech used to be one of the best places to work. Now it's isn't nearly as competitive. They have a massive foothold in the industry but the opportunities are limited.
