Pros

Good Salary, Great Benefits, Good employees.

Cons

- Every site in the company tries to compete against the others, and management supports this.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Co-workers are passionate about the customers we serve
    Flexibility depending on your job or department
    Opportunities to travel internationally and to relocate globally
    Well-repsected within the community

    Cons

    So many CEOs in the last few years you lose count
    No consistency, long-term strategy or vision b/c of constant turnover at the top. The 2 senior executives who survived >20 years probably should be gone-they exist to maintain the status quo
    Need innovation in products to compete globally--and fix potential LT problems with lingering FDA issues
    The "Old Boys" rule this place and it seems very accepted. Women are barely tolerated and 2 minority men in senior mgmt is the company's claim to diversity and no one seems to see that as a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate with Germany to correct product complaints or it could hurt at the worse time and hit profits hard. Don't let long-term employees run away newer employees with new ideas and willingness to innovate. Actually work on improving relationships with employees by having managers go out into the field or onto the floor and learn about employees challenges and how they would "fix" their jobs.

    Pros

    Challenging projects
    Very competent and diverse work force
    Very good overall compensation
    Company is well positioned in the current global environment
    International opportunities exist for those who are interested

    Cons

    Roche is a very conservative organization that is heavily regulated in the US and the rest of the world. This limits product development cycles and overall project timelines and budgets. Career growth can be limited and there does exist the possibility to be "pigeon-holed" into assignments for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk with regards to creating a organization where the employees are empowered to make decisions to move efforts forward. Find a way to stabilize the portfolio and make decisions accordingly.
