    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain departments and managers are more flexible with work-life balance - needs to be a bit more equal throughout

    I have been working at Roche full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic portfolio, innovative approach, great offices, talented people. New structure is empowering more people and generating swifter decision making. Emphasis on leadership is strong with leadership commitments being clear and part of all leaders objectives.

    Cons

    Too brand focused over recent years rather than customer focused. especially cross portfolio in oncology. Used to embrace a diverse range of styles, more than other companies but this is changing to a certain type now. Lost a lot of talent in the restructure last year so is having to relearn some lessons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the customer more. Embrace different kinds of leadership and individuals.
