Pros

Diversity and GLobal presence of its culture

Cons

Euro centric work culture and processes;
Lack of corresponding respect for vast differences in US work culture

Advice to Management

There is a belief that ROche is not that different than Genetech
In fact, ROche is a Euro beauracracy and needs to adapt the success model
which has worked so successfully for Genentech-it is not luck

    Pros

    The workplace environment is one that benefits the employees. Every now and then, fun activites are planned to promote the employees well-being, such as fundraisers, pitch-ins and more. Overall, it is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The health benefits (for Adecco) are not what they could be, which had I known it before, I probably would have looked someplace else. The pay is reasonable, but healthcare benefits are lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Make yourself more available to the "average" employee. Interactions with management are great and they facilitate an environment of growth, but upper management is rarely seen.


  2. "Successfull Drug Giant"

    Pros

    Roche is a very Successful company, compared to all the other pharma corporations out there in the world. the drug pipeline looks promising, espceially with all the Genentech stuff.

    Cons

    Roche is very bureaucratic and slow moving company. The Swiss culture certainly is visible and most decsions are taken centrally after months of discussions. While top management is OK, the next level of management in the headquarter is of mixed competence. The recent Genentaech announcement is a downer.

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the various levels of management in the organziation in the headquarter. There is a clear lack of inspirational abilities.
