    No opinion of CEO

    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.

    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.
