    I worked at Roche full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, high level of integrity and a strong pipeline. People who come to Roche usually don't leave for other companies.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel too buttoned down and old fashioned - this is a Swiss company after all. It could stand to integrate some of Genentech's original hipness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roche could stand to add a little more fun into the workplace

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with an engaging workload. Just enough work to push you to do more and progress within the company.

    Cons

    None that are worth mentioning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you go the extra mile to recognise the staff putting in the extra mileage for the company. This doesn't always happen.
