Does Genentech offer massages?

Pros

My direct manager and supervisors were great. They always made me feel included and like a real employee even though I was only a contractor. Great perks, such as free beer and food on fridays. Sometimes you get free cater lunches and bbq.

Cons

Lots of workplace politics involve. They dont really want to hire their contractors permanently. Lots of in fighting involved to see who can get a permanent head count between managers and different group. Upper management straight up lied to us. They said they weren't going to have a layoff, but kept mentioning being more lean and minimizing cost. Employees weren't surprise when they announced multiple layoffs in the company. I'll never understand how a company can report billions in profit, but have to go through a layoff to remain competitive.

Advice to Management

The company is so big, that at times I feel like they weren't working as one whole team. It felt more like multiple teams trying to protect what is theirs instead of everyone helping each other out.
