Mission: Doing now what patients need next
I have been working at Roche full-time (More than 3 years)
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.
Flat structure, however internal movement and promotion is still very high.
I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Roche (Sydney) in August 2011.
Two interview process with behavioural based questions using STAR format. Also included scenario based questions. Both interviews were with a panel which included the hiring manager, hr manager and one person in a peer role.
