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

    Pros

    Very professional. Excellent career development opportunities. Plenty of chances to learn new things as part of the job.

    Cons

    Frequent layoff cycles. Upper management will swear, up and down, that a site will be kept open and then announce the site closure the next day. Many people were moved from Palo Alto when that site was closed, and then the Nutley site was closed less than 2 years later.

    Advice to Management

    Don't move people to a site you know is closing very soon. Don't tell people you're keeping a site open, and then announce the closure a few months later.
