    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Roche full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has a wonderful corporate culture at the Mississauga campus. They encourage employee wellness and promote social activities, and are flexible and accommodating when it comes to work-life balance. The campus is beautifully constructed with lots of natural light, adaptive work stations, a full cafeteria, gym, and casual seating areas.

    Cons

    Departmental processes need to be less complex and more organized, but this is something that's already being worked on. Other than that, not much!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep site staff in the loop with up and coming goals, accomplishments and organizational updates.
