    I have been working at Roche full-time

    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.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Roche full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Good compensation - Strong culture with a good balance between performance and people focus - Strong talent - Strong pipeline

    Cons

    - is currently in a Transformation process towards agility but especially senior management mindset has not shifted (pseudo empowerment that leads to a situation where nobody knows who makes decisions) - Global HQ has a strong culture with strong talent while Roche Germany (Grenzach) is more an old school command & control culture - While diversity is high on the agenda (which is good), it seems to be solely focused on gender rather than different cultural backrounds (e.g. Emerging markets) and very much shaped around a single minded US/Genentech culture that does not feel very diverse

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Roche full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    excellent supportive staff, nice offices, resonable pay and benefits,

    Cons

    Diabetes care is a disaster zone at present, wholesale redundancies (50+ out of 140 staff) jobs awarded without due process to whomevers face fits, very poor staff moral due to uncertanty of role and financial situation, appaling behaviour by some senior management who are rude, conceited and incapable of perfoming role, ( or just unable to perform their role). senior management who boast about their salaries and the value of their expense account whilst people are being made redundant. very slow to market, new services and offerings 2-3 years late, massive market errosion, not a place to work at present, steer clear as you wont/cant make a difference

    Former Employee - Accountant in Budapest
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Roche full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The Company Roche, in general os ok.

    Cons

    Recent Budapest SSC Senior Management is terrible. The very few still valuable is being sent away with various "created" reasons. They are building a Kingdom with their servants. They are destroying the values built during 13 years. I hated to go to work this year, as everything is so false now.
