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boy network, morale is terrible and upper management breeds a work atmosphere of fear and intolerance.The company is outdated in its leadership style.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

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

    Pros

    Stable job, company has been around for a long time.

    Cons

    People stay years and years, move up bcos of seniority. Nothing to do with capability.

    Advice to Management

    Stay connected to what goes on, rather than worrying about who at what level said/did what. Heirarchy is stiffling.
