    Pros

    nice views - literally that's it

    Cons

    Corrupt, unethical and incompetent management. Get ready to see massive payouts to former employees for wrongful termination. HR is a complete joke. Literally NO ethics department - what does that tell you?!

    Advice to Management

    Need to completely overhaul "Finance" dept.!!! Also HR - all they do is cover for unethical managers. It's a complete circus.

    Pros

    Roche/Genentech has a strong mission. Employees have many global opportunities with lots of ways to develop and grow. There is a good focus on people. The pipeline of products is strong. There is an environment of play hard and work hard.

    Cons

    Roche/Genentech is a very large organization and that can be challenging for individuals. There is the potential to have to work global hours with colleagues. The market place is maturing with increasing competition and pressures.

    Advice to Management

    Roche/Genentech can continue to follow the science and bring focus to patients. Find opportunities to create innovative and creative environments with smaller collocated teams.

    Swiss/German owned and that is the primary focus in my opinion. NAM is secondary.

    I worked at Roche full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off. Monday through Friday work week. Good training for both product line and sales presentations.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit of micro management. Also marketing pieces needed to be redone more frequently. New buildings but several realignments (lay offs in Roche lingo).

    Advice to Management

    Find other positions within the company in other areas rather than let people go from one position and then hire from the outside. Better a known, loyal team member than an unknown.
