    I enjoy working here the benefits are great

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits, the company values, core beliefs and they promote heavily from within

    ConsTraining can be a bit much since there are constant changes happening daily. We aren't fully merged with our sister company GENE as expected

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider taking employees through constant training and no to assume that they will learn via email

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Roche Regulatory Affairs (Nutley) was a great organization and great place to work!

    Regulatory Affairs (Former Employee) Nutley, NJ

    ProsIt was a supportive, professional, laid back, familial environment. They offered opportunities for growth, great benefits and perks with generous bonuses and fair raises. Management was open to new ideas and process improvements.

    ConsThe major con was the constant change once merged with Genentech. Once that happened there were a lot of changes structurally and otherwise.

    Traditional Large Company

    Internal Communications Consultant (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsThe pay was very competitive, the Indianapolis site has many nice facilities, and many employees had been working there for several years. There was a since of loyalty and security with the company.

    ConsEverything was very traditional, especially the cubical environment I worked in. It was very much a 'clock in, clock out' culture. The size of the company made it difficult to get things done without going up a fairly sizable chain of command.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should try to engage with employees a bit more. Those I worked with seemed overworked, so it was understandably tough for them to socialize much.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
