    Pros

    Roche offers very good benefits. They are generous with time off and the cost of living in Indianapolis is very reasonable.

    Cons

    It is a very toxic environment in some areas. People are hateful and spiteful and would rather secure their power than welcome new people and new ideas

    Pros

    It pays well, but its not worth it.

    Cons

    Absolutely no concern for the health and wellbeing of field employees. Overutilization gone wild. Management completely out of touch. Working for Roches service is harder on your health than smoking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house!

    Pros

    Roche will be around forever. No one will ever buy them because they are just too big!

    Cons

    Because of the innovative products, sometimes sales reps don't earn the same level of commissions as other companies. Salaries are good but for top performing reps the earnings are lack luster.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation per deal has declined every year for 6 years running. Your high performing reps will go elsewhere.
