    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Roche full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    By far the people who work at Roche make this a world class company. The company makes investments into their employees.

    Cons

    Consensus driven management style, often a late adopter to new technology. Some business units have dated products, but you're expected to sale them.

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees to feel secure in taking risk

    Pros

    Benefits are great and pay is good or better than most. Good work life balance and cultural beliefs.

    Cons

    Seem to "reorganize" often which creates a state of wondering if you'll have a job or not about every 18 mos. Lacking in technology development which will hurt them in the long run.

    I worked at Roche full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most things from a corporate standpoint are done 'by the book'. Roche doesn't cut corners. The structure of the organization is solid, and most of the Sr Leadership

    Cons

    The culture is competitive, fear-driven, & cutthroat. The Indy HQ is essentially just a sales office for the global product teams. Glorified used car dealers. The global teams hold most of the critical actions and decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Beware the cult of personality and the agenda of the attention-seeking. Listen to your customers. Hold marketing accountable and set their bonus on the sales dollars/targets for the year.

    Pros

    Nice people who honestly want to do the right thing. Good benefits, support, and perks.

    Cons

    Very little innovation. Takes a long time to get something done due to consensus building. They hire from withing often which reduces new thinking and challenging of the status quo.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new people from outside of Roche.

    Strong market position. Overall a solid business

    No senior career opportunities unless you have spent the last 20 years at Roche. Roche red tape is making the company less innovative

    Focus less on self promotion and spend more time developing your employees by implementing better training programs and more attractive career paths
