    Pros

    Scientific and patient values, seamless integration with Roche to make an environment that is both local and global, smart, driven people, no drama between functions. Sufficient resources to get your job down. Excellent management who support and develop employees. Amazing pipeline and family-owned parent company provides unusual stability in a fast changing indistry.

    Cons

    Processes and execution of clinical trials are not where they should be. Time zone difference of 9 hours to Basel is a reality in your work day. Pressure of competition and increasing unwillingness of countries/payers to pay for medical innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing employees as the #1 asset. Think about how to improve our decision making processes (scientific and portfolio review) so that the process is "lighter" and faster. Time is of the esence for many of our patients.
