    I have been working at Roche

    Pros

    Knowledge sharing between departments and collaboration with colleagues was always excellent. Good communication between global teams using very modern technology. Up to date tools and always process improvement on an ongoing basis. Telecommuting was excellent, dependent on the department and the type of job you had it was possible to negotiate some work from home time. Very accomodating with work-life balance. Exceptional benefits,

    Cons

    Since GNE integration the management structure is not as secure as in previous years. Not always willing to acknowledge star performers due to the budget. Found merit reviews were always depressing and fell short of expectations since everyone is really thrown into one budget bag and it is then divided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont' throw away the Baby with the bath water. Need to think about the global company profile with other pharma and biotech companies since the Genentech integration.

    Very satisfactory at the site leve, but frustrating at the global level due to excess bureaucracy.

    Pros

    The campus was beautiful. Local Management was good. Training was encouraged. My department consisted of great co-workers who worked well in teams.

    Cons

    The headquarters in Basel were frustrating to work with. The North American headquarters in Nutley were frustrating to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Palo Alto leadership was very good. The Advice to management at other sites would include better communication and more respect.
