    I have been working at Roche full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company culture that really respects the work/life balance. Friendly and collaborative staff who are really passionate about what they do. The new office in Barangaroo, Sydney, is fantastic. Light, modern with a hot-desking environment and a rooftop terrace with full-time baristas serving complementary coffee all day - how many employers do that for their staff? No core working hours and working from home is encouraged. Shows management really respect the Australian culture. Generous transport policy for people flying overseas and lots of international secondment opportunities.

    Cons

    Flat structure, however internal movement and promotion is still very high.
