Genentech

Genentech makes the list at #11 with an overall satisfaction score of 4.0 out of 5 for compensation and benefits. Considered the founder of the industry, Genentech, now a member of the Roche Group, has been delivering on the promise of biotechnology for over 35 years. Genentech uses human genetic information to discover, develop, manufacture and commercialize medicines to treat patients with serious or life-threatening medical conditions. Founded in 1976, the company now has annual revenue of over $10 billion (USD).

Review highlights:

  • "Good work-life balance, beautiful campus, co-workers are mostly nice and helpful."
  • "Employees get great benefits, though Roche prefers to save money by hiring contractors."
  • "Smart people who really care about patients."
  • "Great place to meet new connections, get mentoring and build your career."
  • "Good benefits, although current FTEs complain they're going downhill."

While many factors play into the notion of feeling satisfied with your job and your employer, without a doubt one of the top criteria is adequate compensation and benefits. Let's face it, having adequate financial resources just makes life easier. Feeling that your company appreciates your contribution and supports your well-being, well, that doesn't hurt either.
