The Portfolio Rotation Program (PRP) is a comprehensive two-year program designed to provide associates with exposure to four different functions through four 6-month rotations. The program is divided into three organizations: Genentech Research and Early Development, Pharma Development, and Commercial, Medical & Government Affairs. Throughout the program, associates will work closely with global teams to gain experience in program management, portfolio management, and strategic analytics and insights, with a focus on late-stage drug development orchestration.

In the final rotation, participants will have the opportunity to apply for open positions at Genentech to advance their career goals. This unique program offers associates the chance to gain a wide range of skills and experience across different functions while working with a diverse group of colleagues.
Examples of Work

PRP participants will be embedded in teams advancing potential medicines across the drug development life cycle (early preclinical development, Phase 1 to 3 clinical trials, and after commercial launch). 

Participants help to enable smarter and more efficient Roche-wide decision-making within Commercial, Medical, and Government Affairs. They also will help to enable field teams with analytics, insights, incentives, and tools.
