Pros

The workplace environment is one that benefits the employees. Every now and then, fun activites are planned to promote the employees well-being, such as fundraisers, pitch-ins and more. Overall, it is a great place to work.

Cons

The health benefits (for Adecco) are not what they could be, which had I known it before, I probably would have looked someplace else. The pay is reasonable, but healthcare benefits are lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make yourself more available to the "average" employee. Interactions with management are great and they facilitate an environment of growth, but upper management is rarely seen.

    Pros

    Diversity and GLobal presence of its culture

    Cons

    Euro centric work culture and processes;
    Lack of corresponding respect for vast differences in US work culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a belief that ROche is not that different than Genetech
    In fact, ROche is a Euro beauracracy and needs to adapt the success model
    which has worked so successfully for Genentech-it is not luck

    Pros

    Roche 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.

    Cons

    Roche 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 ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at the various levels of management in the organziation in the headquarter. There is a clear lack of inspirational abilities.
