Pros

Great Benefits .. updated equipment, perks from the company and vendors, great experience

Cons

Closed the development department, too much back and forth and not following up on promises made early on before the layoff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep business in the US instead of Switzerland.

    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    Easy commute to NYC via public transportation.
    Good benefits, many campus amaenities (ie, on-site doctors/nurses, cafeteria, friendly people, social activities/clubs sponsored by Roche).
    Salary is good

    Cons

    Layoffs have occurred due to the genetech take over
    Morale is suffering
    Colleagues at Genetech are very arrogant and filled with false self-importance
    Little opportunities in Nutley due to site being downgraded from an HQ to an R&D backwater

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really need to keep Genentech under control and make them more accountable for their costs. You really need to build up the Nutley site and have more opportunities. The Genenetech take over was a really bad decision--paying top dollar during a recession for a company that is not very effective.
