What are other benefits and incentives like at Roche?

Pros

The overall company compensation and benefits are great. The employees are always willing to help each other. The mission of helping those afflicted by cancer is a noble mission.

Cons

-The mission of Roche in Tucson has unfortunately shifted from helping patients to generating increased profit and revenue. -Due to the senior leadership in Tucson taking short cuts in the past, the environment now is one of constantly reacting to problems which should have been solved years ago. -Some portions of senior leadership in Tucson are creating an environment of fear and finger pointing. -There is a drive by senior leadership in Tucson to outsource the instrument development and focus on Assay integration and Assay development only.

Advice to Management

-Push back on the company directive of increasing profit and revenue to be passed to other divisions within Roche and invest in Tucson facility. Focus the culture more on what made Ventana special, it's mission and people. -Listen up and take a hard look at some of the senior leadership within Tucson. They are unfortunately creating a caustic environment which may take a while to repair. -Before it is too late, don't let your instrument development knowledge walk out the door.

Does Roche offer bonus pay?

Pros

Individual teams are often great made up of highly engaged colleagues that work hard and support each other to succeed. Benefits are better than the industry average and keep improving each year. Bonus payouts have been well above industry averages for several years.

Cons

Senior leaders are nearly invisible across the organization, very little transparency and lots of lip service to things like culture, diversity and leadership commitments without action or accountability. Often significant, unnecessary inflection points and wild swings of direction on teams as leaders come and go. HR is only there to support you until there is an issue and then they will always support the +1's and toss you aside.

Advice to Management

Take a hard look at people, practices and GEOS results, the environment globally is not getting better with the same issues persisting year after year. Get rid of those leaders that are so insecure they feel threatened by their colleagues or direct reports.
