Each year for the past 3 years, there have been significant field changes and focus on structure / organization, with the last being most significant. Changes happen 'quickly' - meaning the plan is set out, you train, re-org then as soon as that is done, the next 'big change' is being introduced - sometimes its the seemingly exact opposite of what was just completed.
culture and travel
too many changes
With the BLM movement and riots you were expected to adopt managements views, regardless of your own views and beliefs. If you were not onboard with this you were forced out. Management was not organized and we were forced to constantly redo good work at a managers whim and not based on any type of criteria or specifications.
As previously stated but no paid holidays, vacation, Ppo, etc.

gRed Management withheld project opportunities because of a clear bias against older workers. Despite having years of solid experience, management would not relinquish full responsibility for project management.
Lots of work available
Exclusion from best projects because of age despite experience and fitness to do the job.

Bus is a big asset.Health/life balance, pay, helpful and friendly groups.
No job security for contractors.
There was a cafeteria with pretty good food, but sadly you gotta pay. Not much benefits working here....they have nice gatherings every now and then, but that's all. Work is nice and easy. You get to work early and be able to have entire day to self for other stuff.
Especially to new hires who may be contracting with other organizations the best thing about the organization is the options of what an employee can have for breakfast and lunch. You may be assigned to a team or a senior employee but the warm and fuzzy is definitely not there.

Enjoyed contributing to the success of Genentech in terms of delivering drugs to fight significant illnesses such as cancer, MS, etc. Wonderful culture and great benefits that support the employee and their family. I did find that because it is such a large company it is very slow to have programs or concepts approved.
My manager as well as the previous one were complete idiots . They would step on anyone or do anything to advance their careers. They were masters at fabrication and prevarication.
Due to more than 70% are contract employees, the company heirachy and environment is disfunctional. HR benefited staff will literally say in a meeting with contract empliyees, G is a haves vs have nots.
Dysfunctional from parent company and management, Wasted resources, Management that are benefited do not have experience in their field.
Genentech pays above and beyond the average salaries for the area. High-pressure to meet metrics. Less stress on quality than I felt comfortable with. Micromanagement to the Nth degree. Company professes to support diversity and inclusivity but this is not reflected in reality.
