An excellent learning and growth experience
Lead analyst on the swing and/or graveyard shifts (Current Employee) – Oceanside, CA – November 21, 2018
I have been in the Biotech Industry for 17 years. I have truly enjoyed my experience at Roche/Genentech. My typical day at work consists of my team and I convening at the outset of the shift to discuss, in an organized fashion, work related current events, and the path forward for the day's activities. With Roche/Genentech I have learned multiple scientifically backed assays (see resume) that comport with GMP compliance that are used in release of FDA approved product. In addition, I have learned how to solve problems as they arise, and interact with multiple departments and personnel on a daily basis to solve problems and ensure a path forward is established. Management has always been a respectable entity at Roche/Genentech. They have consistently promoted progress and development. Workplace culture has always been an important aspect of the job. At Roche/Genentech, we have celebrations that occur upon achievements, monthly mixers, a great Christmas time party/parties, enjoyable day to day interactions with coworkers. The hardest part of the job is trouble shooting stubborn instruments and/or assays. Typically this is a function of software or instrumentation. The most enjoyable part of the job is of course the people. At my location, I have great and professional colleagues. I could not ask for better.
Sometimes long hours.
