    Fear and intolerance reign at Roche

    I worked at Roche

    Pros

    Autonomy, Good Benefits, Decent Salary, Longevity of company, company car, well established in specific disease states (infectious diseases, HIV, oncology), a global company that has leverage in the world.

    Cons

    Very political, old boy network, morale is terrible and upper management breeds a work atmosphere of fear and intolerance.The company is outdated in its leadership style. It's uninspiring, using old leadership and management techniques, probably due to the fact that Roche Global is a family owned company and runs alot like the catholic church: very hierarchical. Consequently it all runs down hill: fear, intolerance, paternalistic, narrow minded towards ethnic and diverse peoples, and one gets prompted based not on skill sets and ability but rather who knows who.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire them all. Start with new senior management then make sure they are thinking like modern thinkers with a forward type vision

    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    Sense of purpose in working for a company that develops medicines that help people, opportunities to develop different skills, good benefits, enjoy co-workers who for the most part are motivated and engaged in their jobs.

    Cons

    Very conservative culture that doesn't encourage risk-taking, don't think management overall has progressive flexible work-life policies, management seems out of touch with needs and desires of workforce, technology not cutting-edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time talking and listening to the rank and file (not in organized meeting settings), develop a decent budget along with time for training and development.
