"think well before you go"

What don't you like about working at Genentech?

"I worked at Genentech for 4 yrs in the Molecular Biology Department. Quickly after being hired I discovered that the group of scientists I was working with were extremely unhappy. Interestingly, these employees were very happy with the company as a whole. The Managing Scientists running my lab were unethical, inhumane, and untrustworthy. It was one of the most difficult situations I have ever experienced. My colleagues discovered, over time, that the Managing Scientists running this lab had not only been fired from their previous company, but that they had had an entire lab before our lab at Genentech, and all of these employees either quit or were moved into other labs within Genentech. My lab went through the process of attempting to discuss the issues with our bosses directly, but that only made the situations more grave. Especially for certain vocal people. Once nothing was done, we went to the Vice President of Molecular Biology to have discussions with him, but still nothing was done. Soon after meeting with the VP of MB, certain people within the group, who were great associates, were placed on performance punishments. I was so appalled. People started becoming continuously sick (from the stress), but still coming into work. Finally people began quitting. It was horrible. The supervisors began hiring more people and they eventually quit too. It's been 2 years since I left and those Managing Scientist are still employed at Genentech, although I have heard that they are finally being forced to have limited numbers of employees. I simply cannot believe that Genentech, as company, would treat their employees so poorly. So many people were deeply affected by these Managing Scientists. Genentech is certainly not a perfect company (especially in their Research Division). Please be very, very careful who you work for and try to gauge the realistic attitudes of the laboratory personnel before accepting a position at this company."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"the ones who manage should be on those positions becuase of their proven ability to manage people, and because they are potentially ready to do the job of everyone they manage, not just give orders. LISTEN, LISTEN, LISTEN and offer justified solutions to work situations!!"

"would not go back, ever."

What do you like about working at Genentech?

"benefits were good, that is probably the best, they have also good commute busses"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"watch out well during the interview and talk with as many people as possible."

What don't you like about working at Genentech?

"people were not rewarded according to thir performance not according to how good a..kissers they are!!!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"need to realize that manager need 2 things -know how to treat people (excatly the soft skills they are BIG on during the interviewing proseess, which is exactlly what managments lacks) AND managers need to go through all the steps of the ladder - you cannot manage people if you have not REALLY worked yourself. Many people cannot realize that in order to become boss you need to be ready to do all the things you made your employees do yourself and to actually know what does this mean to accomplish certain things."
