    Cons

    Roche is so big, and its management structure so layered *and* networked that you may very well never meet, or even be able to name, the people who control or care about your project.

    Upper management doesn't know what they're doing, how to hire managers, how to fire toxic employees, etc Still no sales. Below market wage. A lot of below average, hard to work with employees.

    I have been working at Roche for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a global company there are a lot of career development opportunities. Job rotations are taken seriously by the company.

    Cons

    For a software engineer it might not be the best company compared to other pure software development companies. There is not enough software development on site.
