    Pros

    First and foremost because Roche is a company which invests in its employees, period.
    Then, because we are a big family of over 85,000 employees focusing on one thing only, make the world a better place. I have already worked in 4 countries for Roche, and everywhere the same spirit of growing together.

    Cons

    Like in any matrix organization, it might be tricky sometimes so communication, communication and communication.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good work !

    Pros

    Découverte de l'industrie pharmaceutique, produits avec hauts potentiels, bonne formation, responsabilités données aux apprentis, participation à beaucoup de formations et découverte de tous les métiers de l'entreprise. Ils essayent de garder les apprentis par la suite mais pas beaucoup d'embauches.

    Cons

    Grosse structure donc décisions lentes. Il faut être au bon endroit au bon moment pour être éventuellement embauché. Les apprentis et les stagiaires ne sont souvent pas aux mêmes étages que leurs managers ce qui ne facilite pas la communication et multiplie les allers-retours.

    Advice to Management

    Il faudrait tenter de garder les hauts potentiels bien que certains bénéficient heureusement d'un programme de développement rapide. Il faudrait essayer de maximiser l'espace pour réunir les équipes ensemble.

    Good leadership. Good working pace. Sufficient resources to do a good job.

    Cons

    Big company with sometimes long projects. Company politics sometimes get in the way of a pragmatic solution.

    Advice to Management

    Let the people decide on the right level of competencies. Make who can and should decide.

    Pros

    Die Stimmung im Team ist super. Der Umgang miteinander ist auch abteilungsübergreifend ehrlich höflich. Insgesamt ist man sehr auf Kooperation bedacht. Networking ist grosser Teil des Arbeitsalltags, so dass man innerhalb kürzester Zeit die Chance hat, Einblicke in eine Vielzahl von verschiedenen Funktionen zu gewinnen und so den eigenen Horizont zu erweitern.

    Cons

    Der krasse Drang nach Kooperation sorgt dafür, dass man des öfteren nur schwierig mit seiner Arbeit oder Projekten vorankommt, da auch bei kleineren Aufgaben immer der Segen aller Beteiligten abgeholt werden muss, egal wie klein der Stake ist.

    Advice to Management

    Manchmal müssen Entscheidungen einfach gefällt werden. Menschlich: Weiter so!

  11. Roche ist ein sehr vorbildliches Unternehmen, welches sich auch um seine Mitarbeiter sorgt.

    Pros

    Sehr gutes Essen in der Kantine. Der Umgang mit Kollegen war jederzeit super. Ansprechende Arbeiten. Angemessenes Gehalt für ein Praktikum. Roche ist weltweit bekannt und marktführend im Bereich Biotechnik.

    Cons

    Ich denke man kommt da nicht so einfach rein. Also die Chancen von Roche genommen zu werden sind da nicht so gut.

    Advice to Management

    Ich habe keine Vorschläge, da das Unternehmen in meinen Augen super ist!
