    I worked at Roche full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Roche treats their employees fairly and respectfully, takes a quality approach to their manufacturing processes so you can feel good about representing their products.

    Cons

    Market/healthcare changes present huge obstacles for the Diabetes Care business so you're forced to do more with less. Insulin pump leaves much to be desired by key customers.

    Pros

    Intelligent and friendly coworkers. Career discussions are mandated with employees and managers at least twice per year, but more frequent dicussions are encouraged. Opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Major downsizing in 2012 has left some gaps in the workforce. Hiring of new employees has been slow.

    Current Employee - Intern, Product Communications in Pleasanton, CA

    I have been working at Roche as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Roche's internship program is one of the best programs out there. Not only is the entire company incredibly welcoming and supportive of the interns, the program gives us access to senior directors, department heads, and other people in upper management so that we get as much exposure within the company as possible. In addition, the skills and experiences you gain are invaluable. I've had the opportunity to work on two projects that will affect other Roche employees.

    Cons

    Despite heading two projects of my own, sometimes it does feel like the full time employees put work for my project on the back burner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would strongly encourage more of upper management to get involved with the intern program. This is the chance to foster future employees and mentor people with huge potential.
