    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    The benefits, the company values, core beliefs and they promote heavily from within

    Cons

    Training can be a bit much since there are constant changes happening daily. We aren't fully merged with our sister company GENE as expected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider taking employees through constant training and no to assume that they will learn via email

    I worked at Roche full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was a supportive, professional, laid back, familial environment. They offered opportunities for growth, great benefits and perks with generous bonuses and fair raises. Management was open to new ideas and process improvements.

    Cons

    The major con was the constant change once merged with Genentech. Once that happened there were a lot of changes structurally and otherwise.

    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    worklife balance is great, and the benefits are tremendous. The business is very rewarding and tremendous opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Difficult to move around if not networking yourself, you must be willing to put in the hard work. You need to get to know people across the company to move easily to new positions.
