    I worked at Roche full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Good product ideas. Staff work together to meet goals. Has large parent company, Roche, for support. Good benefits. Intelligent staff.

    Cons

    Competitive market means rapid, 4 year development cycles. QC, QA and Manufacturing are on the East coast and Research, Development, Marketing, Business Development, Regulatory and the Administrative center are in Pleasanton which makes maintaining good communication important.

    Advice to Management

    You will increase efficiency and have more product success if you listen to your lower staff's suggestions
