How are senior leaders perceived 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.

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

Pros

Work life balance (atleast for senior management as they come by 10.30-11am & leave by 4-4.30pm)

Cons

Company culture, Restructuring in every 2-3 years as Company works on very short term strategy of 2-3 years (If that way of working can even be termed as strategy), No long term vision, Many Instances of Senior management being fired & asked to leave immediately. Continuous Degrowth in business in last 5-6 years, Lack of intent, focus & seriousness by Management to grow business which impacts people at lower level during restructuring. Not a company to work if you are hired at junior & mid level management.
