Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Genentech full-time

Pros

Great work environment during the entire period of time

Cons

a bit far from home

Advice to Management

doing a great job all around

I worked at Celgene

Pros

Good company values, friendly atmosphere

Cons

Several managers have been promoted too soon leading to people in management that do not understand the area they are managing.

Advice to Management

Review your promotion procedures. Promotion should be based on merit, not tenure. Promote those that work hard, not just say they work hard!
