    Former Employee - Sales  in  Nutley, NJ
    Former Employee - Sales in Nutley, NJ

    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boy network, morale is terrible and upper management breeds a work atmosphere of fear and intolerance.The company is outdated in its leadership style.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
