    I have been working at Roche Sequencing Solutions full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. amazing colleagues to work with
    2. very rewarding projects to work on
    3. team managers are very welling to listen to teams' suggestions/options and they show much appreciation to team members' work
    4. great company benefits

    Cons

    1. location (our office is in Pleasanton)
    2. not a lot of coffee/tea/soft drink options like most companies do and the cafeteria is pale in comparison with Genentech's (okay maybe I am asking too much ;-) )

    Advice to Management

    I'd be awesome if we can have our working environment like Genentech's? (e.g., cafeteria, gym)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Roche Sequencing Solutions in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied on-line. Was called by HR for an initial phone screen. Subsequently had panel type interview on-site with: potential peers, upper management and hiring manager. Felt the interview went well, had positive interactions with the panel. Not too tough, general behavioral based questions. People were pleasant and explained their current situations including limitations and issues that are present within the organization. Was contacted after the interview in order to consent to a background check. Background check was performed successfully but haven't heard anything back yet, after 2 weeks.

Company Updates

  • Roche NimbleGen is conveniently located in the University Research Park. One of the best things about being located in the Park are the food carts that line up right outside our doors!

    Carts in the Park

    Food carts are no longer just a "downtown thing!"

  • Roche NimbleGen's exome product, SeqCap, was used to help Nic Volker in one of the earliest cases of personalized medicine. Two Pulitzer Prize winning journalists have written a book about Nic's medical odyssey, which was released today!

    Book Review - 'One in a Billion' a smart account of taking genomics personally

    The Human Genome Project was launched in 1990, while I was an undergraduate student studying biology and chemistry. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, this collaborative project had the unbelievably lofty goal of identifying and mapping the chemical base pairs that make up the DNA in a human cell.
