    Pros

    Nice people and facility. Good training

    Cons

    My manager did not provide me w/ all the information I needed to complete task, so I would have to go to him and ask for help. Then he would tell me the missing step that he hadn't mentioned the first time. So it was frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more innovative people. Better train and manage managers.

    Pros

    Company cares about your well-being and treats employees fair, but....

    Cons

    some departments are cut-throat to the point that you need to watch your back constantly

    Advice to Management

    Fix HR discipline system. One mistake causes verbal warnings and documented counseling (at least that's what I'm told) and people are so concerned about making a simple mistake that they are afraid to think outside the box.

    Pros

    Large international company offering diverse employment and growth opportunities. Employee support and benefits are comprehensive and equally available for field and home campus employees. Resources critical for employee success provided and supported. Personal development encouraged.

    Cons

    Size and complexity can be challenging. Individuals can be lost in the "crowd". The messaging is right but implementation and outcomes are not always achievable. Direction changes rapidly resulting in unfinished initiatives and frustration. International perspectives along with regulatory and compliance differences can be seen as roadblocks to success.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the Roche culture. Increase internal awareness of all Roche customer related initiatives across all divisions. Improve horizontal and vertical internal communications among all divisions and employees.
