Great company with fantastic benefits. Really smart people with a lot of desire to do well. The organization is complex but they do a good job of rallying everyone around a singular goal.


International travel post Roche became too much. Lots of big company politics.

    Depends on your boss
    Benefits good - medical with affordable ppo, salary and bonus good
    Nice campus - lots of catering - parties
    Good busses - good train transportation


    Not family friendly - depends on boss - not equal across company
    Hiring more temps - less perm workers
    Vacation limited - with sabbatical is still only 3 weeks per year. Culture does not allow for time off without pay
