    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, good facilities, lots of people and access to expertise.

    Cons

    Opaque decision making process and many layers of process for even the simplest. Lots of silo mentality and not much entrepreneurial thinking. Open plan throughout and many rules and procedures for everything. Tracking of time spent on projects and work-life balance a low consideration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out a lot of the middle management holding the organisation back.

    Pros

    Nice building, nice company car, reasonnable salary, good benefits. Nothing else.

    Cons

    The worse management ever. Low moral. No consideration for people. Many people left on sick leave or resigned while I was there. This was considered by management as "normal" turn over, therefore no improvements were to be made...

    I worked at Roche

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, reasonable ability to maintain work/life balance

    Cons

    Very poor management, particularly in clinical operations. Very low morale due to bizarre resructure which managed to annoy everyone.
