Successfull Drug Giant

Senior Director (Current Employee)

ProsRoche is a very Successful company, compared to all the other pharma corporations out there in the world. the drug pipeline looks promising, espceially with all the Genentech stuff.

ConsRoche is very bureaucratic and slow moving company. The Swiss culture certainly is visible and most decsions are taken centrally after months of discussions. While top management is OK, the next level of management in the headquarter is of mixed competence. The recent Genentaech announcement is a downer.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a close look at the various levels of management in the organziation in the headquarter. There is a clear lack of inspirational abilities.
