    I worked at Roche full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers and managers were helpful and available, flexible hours, seemed to be room for upward mobility.

    Cons

    Work was rather tedious, office was a cube farm, job did not feel secure (entire departments were sometimes let go/restructured).

    I have been working at Roche full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company provides generous time off, good pay for the Tucson area, and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The company has mediocre leadership at best who makes decisions based on popularity or short-term benefit rather than being the innovative leader in cancer diagnostics that we should be. The technology platforms that are used in products sold are outdated, insecure, and all over the map in terms of back-end. All of the talented people have left for greener pastures with modern technologies to work on and provide to savvy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Success in the marketplace is not a popularity contest. Look to the future and not the past.

    I have been working at Roche

    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!
