    Great company to work for if you're working at the corporate office and not in the field.

    Pros

    If you work at their corporate headquarters, then it's a phenomenal company for which to work; however, outside field sales, I think they're lacking in quality in their senior management.

    Cons

    Outside field sales, I think they're lacking in quality in their senior management.

    Pros

    Roche is a global company with a great deal of diversity and a real cosmopolitan feel. The company consists of many acquisitions of smaller companies, and although the acquired companies would probably prefer to preserve their autonomy, Roche makes an effort to globalize the various components and look for synergies that make sense from a business perspective, as well as offer greater efficiency. Their benefits are great and there are many opportunities for advancement at the middle management level. The company is highly ethical and concerned about sustainability, as evidenced by their environmental programs and comprehensive sustainability reporting. They are also extremely supportive of education and personal development.

    Cons

    The biggest drawback is that they are closing this particular site in the next year! However, there are other opportunities that have been created at other sites around the world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to take advantage of the management training that is offered by the company - most people aren't "born managers" and many find themselves managers by default because someone has left the company or been promoted. The training classes, combined with identifying a mentor, will be a huge benefit for new managers, as well as managers who need a "refrehser".
