    I worked at Roche full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    1.Big blue chip company with many global opportunities to move a progress your career across the world.

    2. Looks good on your CV.

    3. Relatively stable company in a difficult industry.

    4. Friendly staff.

    5. Good staff training.

    6. Nice office facilities.

    Cons

    1. Greater and greater emphasis on centralized processes that lead to edicts from the "Leadership".

    2.The point above leads to managers implementing local solutions but framing results to look like they are the great ideas the "Leadership" has been so kind to share and insist we implement.

    3. Old ideas are re-badged as new. New bosses never ask if an idea has been tried before. They just assume they have best ideas.

    4. "Leadership" that asks for feed back but does not act on it and sidelines personnel who give feedback that does not toe the party line.

    5. After a staff survey showed they were heading in the wrong direction for staff satisfaction 3 years ago, latest survey shows they have scored even lower for the same issues raised 3 years ago.

    6. Are perceived as arrogant by customers and competitors.

    7. They pay less than their competitors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. You are good at developing talent but you keep losing your best people because you do not respect them and you frustrate them till they have no option but to leave.

    2. Your pay is crap. Staff stopped believing in your "industry compensation benchmarks" ages ago. You do not pay as well as your "real" competitors, period. You demand results in the 95th percentile so your pay should reflect that.

    3. 7-8 years of sustained growth did not come about by accident. Start to respect the staff you have.

    4. It is not a good sign when staff are so indifferent they tell you the "Leadership", face to face that you are doing ok, yet your own survey shows you are sliding further back! It shows your staff are tired of giving feedback that is not acted on.

    It was great working with Roche because of the feeling that you belong to a close knit family.

    I worked at Roche full-time

    Pros

    The people are very professional and very helpful. The feeling of belonging to a good team is very evident and people are disciplined and dedicated and always willing to extend a helping hand

    Cons

    The salary is not that great and the current general manager does not put value in the contribution of senior employees. The atmosphere now is that anything new is great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should know not only the market but their employees as well. They should show at least trust in their employees and not be so suspicious on everything. The people in Roche are very dedicated and management must learn how to utilise this.
