Pros

The facilities are nice the building is green. The commute is OK if you live in the East Bary and it is close to BART. The people are very nice and there are social activities for those interested. Roche is a stable company that rarely seems to have layoffs and often is buying new companies.

Cons

Sometimes upper management seems somewhat distant. It is a global company and has that big corporate feel most times. Due to the large size of Roche it lacks the energy one can get a smaller company or start-up.

Advice to Management

Management needs to find a way to be more accessible to the employees.

    "Line management is a farce. They exist only to belittle employees and discriminate against them."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours. But no trust in employees. If you try to work remotely they will not let you but your managers will do so as they please.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours as a salaried employee without additional compensation. But, if you need time for personal matters you have to use vacation time. They treat you like you work on a production line.

    Managers disappear for days without informing their direct reports. Can't be found when needed.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice since the Nutley facility is being closed down. Realize you have talented employees that want to do the best but mid-management gets in the way. They are afraid their direct reports might come up with something better than they can.

    "Great place to work, good culture. The only bad thing is the constant restructuring, and sometime loss of jobs."
