I have been working at Roche

Pros

Big name company in the pharma field
Lots of training chances and materials if you are willing to learn
nice office and location

Cons

bad cafe foods
tasks over-predefined and no more room to apply advanced programming skills
doing some silly programming jobs most of the time by just clicking the buttons with minimum debugging info
too many TC, especially early morning TC for employee in USA
some first-line managers are really bad at managing people, always discouraging or distracting their hardworking employee even when they got a task done with surprisingly good results. Maybe those managers are pessimistic and under pressure thus make the team as unhappy as her/him

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When the first-line manager's boss is in Europe, it is very easy for the first-line manager to hide a lot of problems locally. Please connect with the employee directly.
