    I have been working at Roche full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    An environment of mutual respect and open discussion. Good job security.

    Cons

    Too conservative; not innovative enough. In sequencing division, organization does not have a sense of urgency, nor enough market knowledge to understand how to be competitive. Mgmt says that they empower decisions at the lowest level, but that's not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your market. Hire and promote more industry experts, don't just promote those who've been there ten years. Give 'agile' more than lip service.

    Pros

    The atmosphere is collaborative. The company has a great reputation.

    Cons

    It seems like some people never left their jobs due to the pension plan. so there was some deadwood.

    Advice to Management

    Roche is known as a company that does not shy from layoffs. Senior management should do some work to counter this image.

    I worked at Roche full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They pay well but kick you out very soon.

    Cons

    The senior management has no vision or strategy. Be careful when headhunted - you could be jobless 6 month later. This happened to 3 people in the last 2 years... or they offer you a low entry level job.
