Genentech has been a great company to work for, especially if you are looking into getting into the biotechnology industry. The people here are friendly and encouraging, and the work is very rewarding. You can see how the company is committed to ensuring a better future for mankind as we uncover new ways to treat diseases and unravel genetic technology. The worklife is balanced and there are numerous perks offered at the company. The campus is very beautiful and there are so many opportunities for employees to relax/rejuvenate before returning to work. I would highly recommend this company!
