Roche Madison, WI (US) isn't hiring right now. Check out all Roche jobs
I have been working at Roche full-time (More than 3 years)
I came from 20 years of service in academia, and was not expecting the amazingly engaged group of scientists who are dedicated toward making Roche *the* world leader in clinical sequencing. There is a strategy, and everyone is focused on the goals and the "big picture".
Roche provides opportunities world-wide for anyone looking to gain new skills and new experiences and our local site supports employees becoming better at what they do, or taking advantage of new challenges at the site.
Roche Nimblegen is a small site within the corporation with some of the feel of a "start up". We're very engaged in the processes of what we do. The science, the products, the goals.... that can make the social aspects of a small company feel a little lost in the mix. But it is difficult to motivate coworkers into spending time with each other outside the regular work day. I don't think this is unique to our company.
Advice to Management
Capitalize on the resources in the community for grass-roots support of our products and goals. Maximize engagement in Madison to evangelize our global customers.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Roche (Madison, WI (US)) in February 2015.
I first completed a phone screen with a recruiter from Roche. I then met with the District Manager and Regional Business Manager both on 2 separate occasions. Everyone was wonderful and made the interviewing process enjoyable. Great people at Roche.
