  4. "Not A Speak Up Culture at Genentech Oceanside"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Manager in Oceanside, CA

    I worked at Genentech full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Amazing history. Still holds some of the original Genentech small company feel. Great benefits. Great at hiring talented people. As an entry level job, excellent. Mid level leaders are good people. As you rise it gets too political.

    Cons

    Not a speak up culture, despite what the leadership says. Some people are picked based on results, but not how they got those results- usually by stepping on other people. Rather than trying to do what makes sense or speak up with a differing opinion, you have to look over your shoulder to make sure the leadership doesn't zero in on you. A lot of people say "I'm not promoting- I don't want to enter that arena"

    "Good company with good benefits"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Process Engineer 

    I have been working at Genentech full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and has good potential for growth

    Cons

    Some managers really don't know well about their direct reports. Promotion often is at the discretion of the manager although you are very good at your work. Many times, the manager would prefer to give you excellent performance rating instead of promotion just because he doesn't want to promote you until another 1-2 years or he doesn't think that you are ready. They will not be able to retain good employees if they don't promote them timely.
