    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
