    I worked at Roche full-time

    Pros

    Great products, very good benefits, international networking

    Cons

    Same people will be considered for any advancement opportunities. Too much focus on Millennials while ignoring people with health experience. Too much focus on people raised and born in Indiana instead of being open to diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the politics aside and promote people based on their merits. Be more diverse and allow people from outside of Roche to join in order to bring fresh air to the team.
