What are some insights into the strategy or vision at Roche?

Pros

They pay well but kick you out very soon.

Cons

The senior management has no vision or strategy. Be careful when headhunted - you could be jobless 6 month later. This happened to 3 people in the last 2 years... or they offer you a low entry level job.

Does there seem to be diversity at Roche?

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.
