    Roche Molecular not only promotes, but also inspires under-performance!

    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    Work is pretty slow, so lot of leisurely time.

    Cons

    1. The company has a history of under-performance - its performance is significantly low as
        compared to its competitors.
    2. More emphasis on physical presence than actual work being done. Don't have deadlines if
        you already intend to miss/push it. That sends the message that you are not serious.
    3. 2-3 hour lunches are a norm rather than a luxury. Coming late and leaving early is
        fashionable too.
    4. The recession saw a lot of good people leave and bad ones stay because of favoritism. Lot of
        politics, blame-game and favoritism.
    5. HR-your job should be to find and RETAIN good workers; not to terminate them based on some
         man-made, inflexible rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management - Please stop terrifying people and start listening. Being approachable does not mean giving in. People like to be heard beyond policies, rules, and guidelines.
