I have been working at Roche

Pros

The facilities are nice the building is green. The commute is OK if you live in the East Bary and it is close to BART. The people are very nice and there are social activities for those interested. Roche is a stable company that rarely seems to have layoffs and often is buying new companies.

Cons

Sometimes upper management seems somewhat distant. It is a global company and has that big corporate feel most times. Due to the large size of Roche it lacks the energy one can get a smaller company or start-up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to find a way to be more accessible to the employees.

    I have been working at Roche full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good benefits in our industry

    Cons

    Future is bleak. Current and future products are 18 to 24 months behind the competition. Leadership has no idea, no strategy and no winnable position. I fear the worst for the organization in the next 2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A complete change in diabetes care leadership.

    I worked at Roche

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Strong company which will be around for a long time. There are advantages of working for a private company, such as being less sensitive to short-term market pressures.

    Cons

    There were many layoffs at my facility over the years. It was difficult and depressing to go through the constriction/downsizing that happened at the local level.
