Pros

Management is very concerned with employee personal and career development. They take time each month to discuss your career goals, and give you advice on how to reach them. They also proactively make connections with people in those fields to try and give you exposure.

Cons

As a customer service associate, the job becomes very repetitive when you are on the phone for 8 hours straight.

Advice to Management

I really do not have advice for management, as the only downside is the repetitive nature of the position. This cannot be fixed, and the selection process must obtain people who are willing to work this type of position.

    Pros

    Very supportive of young engineers that want to learn all aspects of the business. Provided a great co-op experience overall.

    Cons

    Roche Carolina is in the very small town of Florence, SC. You have to head out of town to find appropriate social atmosphere for younger generations.

    Advice to Management

    There probably could be more structure for the coop program. As always, the experience varied greatly by the direct manager under whom you worked. My experience doesn't reflect that of some of my peers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Products that help people's lives (you want your family, or family doctor, to use them)
    Brand recognition (mostly from pharma and the retail glucose monitors)
    Public company with the ability to make long-term investments (a rarity these days)

    Cons

    Constant change over the 18 months
    Lack of trust in the direction current senior leadership is taking the company
    Very top-down driven culture with rules that are changing almost daily

    Advice to Management

    Slow down a little - you've got good people, but you are not "really" asking them for input. Basic change management principles instruct a genuine feeling of ownership is necessary for true buy-in and lasting organizational change.
