    I have been working at Roche NimbleGen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Team environment. Lots of opportunity for development. I have been here a long time and seen a lot of change. Opportunities come and go, but if you are flexible, there is usually something to consider. Good work/life balance. Exciting to be part of a growing business and new business unit. We are the long-timers in Roche Sequencing. So in many ways we are paving the way.

    Cons

    Very fast paced and always more work to be done than can be done. But never boring. Not as flexible as a start up being part of a large international company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Roche NimbleGen in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied on-line. Was called by HR for an initial phone screen. Subsequently had panel type interview on-site with: potential peers, upper management and hiring manager. Felt the interview went well, had positive interactions with the panel. Not too tough, general behavioral based questions. People were pleasant and explained their current situations including limitations and issues that are present within the organization. Was contacted after the interview in order to consent to a background check. Background check was performed successfully but haven't heard anything back yet, after 2 weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly situational based questions, "Tell me a time when..."   Answer Question
