    I worked at Roche as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The overall culture of the company. They truly live their cultural beliefs and this makes the company a great place at which to work. I was nervous I didn't have the correct skills for the internship position, but my manager and co-workers couldn't have been more friendly about helping me through on a daily basis.

    Cons

    I didn't have any real projects that I could call my own. I typically was going around the building asking colleagues for work or to help on projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you have in place, but ensure all interns are given something to actually do.
