Pros

Great benefits, smart people, great products. Diverse culture, women well represented in management. Overall, a supportive culture to work in . Great cafeteria, too.

Cons

Increased complexity since merger with Roche, lots of change in management / personelle in last year. Now a global company with more travel and global hours.

Advice to Management

Management should be more visible like they were pre-merger. The company also needs to move on from the integration and continue to recruit highly talented people.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits, acceptable pipeline and overall the company is still focused on the right values. In general, still one of the better companies out there.

    Cons

    Empire building has led to unnecessarily large teams which also resulted in pushing out some of our best and brightest. Promotions are not based on merit alone and the bar always keeps moving as to what is considered meeting the criteria for promotion.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to work with people internationally, travel and work on global projects

    Cons

    Benefits were cut, bonuses were cut, 6 - 7 am meetings most days and expected to work into the evenings and on email 24/7. No work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make your new global environment work for your employees. You are burning us out and not finding any way to make it worth it for us to stay.
