"It is a very great company, if you work in any department other than manufacturing. The benefits are very competitive and the setting of the company is very relaxed. People are generally happy to converse with each other during potlucks and lunches that the company puts together. Manufacturing has a different outlook on the company, though, because it is a 24-hour plant and the company is going VERY lean right now and they are cutting a lot of resources from manufacturing."

"I worked for Genentech for 6 months back in 2017. It was an excellent environment to work in as a college student. My supervisor was incredibly helpful, and the rest of our team was just as excited to have me on board as she was. The company culture is fast-paced. Interns were treated the same as employees, which allowed me to learn and grow a lot during my short period there. I hope i am able to work there again someday in the future as a full time employee."

"I can speak only for what I and numerous other colleagues, who are all well-experienced engineering contractors, often say in private to one another about how we are treated within our respective project teams in our department, which deals interdepartmentally with the development of combination devices. When I first came to the company my manager proactively warned me that "There are LOTS of land-mines here!”, particularly in dealing interdepartmentally with the device team. But what kind of a department constantly requires its engineering contractors, whom it titles as “managers”, to walk on egg shells and contend with preexisting bad internal politics originating from mid-level management in a different department? Although each of us is well-educated and has many years of broad experience and accomplishments in the industry, our actions and contributions are frequently blocked because of internal politics stemming from immature mid-level management. For example, one interdepartmental manager will go out of his way to whine whenever we take the slightest initiative necessary to get the required work done on time. The departments deliberately work in silos and so there is poor collaboration interdepartmentally. Yes, there are regular interdepartmental meetings; but one cannot speak both factually and freely in them lest it might rub one manager the wrong way. Behind the scenes, initiative and drive are actively discouraged and contractors know that they will be chastised even for making a simple phone call to another departmental manager to ask a question necessary to complete their work. We are told that such communication can mushroom into prolonged back and forth discussions and questions; but that would only mean that others are uncertain of their own roles and that there exists a broader lack of direction from management at higher levels. In reality this is just a heavy-handed way to restrict the internal channels and free flow of information."
