    I have been working at Roche full-time

    Pros

    Roche is an awesome company to work for. I have worked here, in the Nutley and New York sites, for 6 years (2012-present), and I have had a great experience so far. Roche went through a very hard reorganization process, when management closed Nutley, and yet their treatment of employees was appropriate. I stayed in the smaller site, changing jobs within departments. We perform great research, with fabulous resources, and fantastic team members. We interact with Diagnostics, Genentech, European sites and Chugai. It is a very rewarding experience and I recommend it to anybody. Kudos!

    Cons

    As in any big company, governance is complex, and it takes long time to make decisions. But drug development is tough, expensive, and decisions must be very careful made. Work/life balance is great and culture is strong.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more often successes and failures. It feels like we only hear about good things, but you need to be more critical with your own work. Overall, you are doing a fantastic job.
