Outstanding Benefits Are Just the Beginning
Genentech is recognized for providing our employees with some of the most competitive and comprehensive benefits in the country. In 2010, we were ranked on FORTUNE Magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" for the 12th consecutive year.
Far more important than public recognition, though, is the motivation behind making Genentech a truly great place to work. We believe that you, as an employee, matter above everything else. We back that statement up continuously with a unique approach to providing you with great benefits and valuable resources. Our benefits packages and resources are designed to support you in creating the life and work style that brings your best to your community, your family and Genentech's mission of addressing significant unmet medical needs.
Most of Genentech's benefits cover employees who work at least 20 hours a week and their eligible dependents. Eligible dependents include:
- A spouse or domestic partner
- Children (biological, step, foster, adopted or legal charge) up to age 26
The majority of our benefits become effective immediately on the date of hire without any pre-existing condition exclusion (temporary employees, contractors, interns and co-ops are not eligible for benefits).
In addition to an array of health and financial benefits and learning opportunities, we offer competitive compensation and bonus programs that reward you for your contributions toward achieving the company's mission and strategic goals. We also provide you with a wide range of services designed to help make life easier while you are at work, so you can spend your free time doing more of the things you enjoy most.
