Uneven, Depends on current top management personalities and beliefs which can swing to extremes.

Research Associate III (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

ProsA long history of a good work environment with good manager support and reasonable expectations and rewards.

ConsUntil recently the positions were stable and changes resulted in reassignment of personnel rather than downsizing. More recently company has taken downsizing as a standard practice which is more inline with other pharmaceutical companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe handling of the Roche Palo Alto site closure announcement a short time after a site meeting unrolling a new vision and more or less five year plan for the site left management with severely damaged credibility. The loss of stability and long term personnel has/will rob Roch of it's historic uniqueness and depth of employee devotion it once had at cost which cannot be calculated.
