I have been working at Roche full-timePros
- Respect for employees' work/life balance. Salaried employees have some flexibility in work hours. Most managers are willing to work with you on this, as long as you're a reliable employee with no performance issues.
- Excellent vacation and health benefits (includes dental, vision, prescription, retirement savings/401k)
- Friendly and respectful work atmosphere
- Plenty of learning and career development opportunities (includes tuition reimbursement)
- Employee appreciation events and activities are very nice and well-organized - company not afraid to spend money to reward employees for hard work
- Good on-site cafeterias/food service
- Challenging work - very bright colleagues who will push and inspire you to do your best.Cons
- Very risk-averse, to the point where project implementation is difficult and can drag on for months. Too much red tape and documentation are required to get any project off the ground.
- The trade-off for the great benefits is that salaries can be 10K lower than what you'd find elsewhere for a similar job title/role.
- Success within your career path depends mostly on who you know and how well you fit with your direct manager's personal focus and leadership style. Employees who are stuck in a rut career-wise can become "unstuck" by moving to a different department/manager.
- Managers spend too much time in meetings and travellingAdvice to ManagementAdvice
- Find ways to streamline project development and implementation, including cutting down on needless, unhelpful documentation and layers of bureaucracy.
- Cut down on meetings and travel for managers.
- Encourage managers to sit with employees once a month and understand the day-to-day work.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
