A good company, fast paced, goal oriented

Manager (Former Employee)
South San Francisco, CA (US)

I worked at Genentech

ProsGood, smart, knowledgeable people. Interesting work, improving patient lives. Great salary, competitive benefits. Solid communication. Overall a very good company to work for.

ConsThe company is still integrating work and systems from the Roche merger, creating some confusion and overlap. The highest growth in the San Francisco area is probably over.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
