      Doesn't Recommend

      I worked at Roche full-time

      Pros

      Great office, flexible working, some amazing people, fairly informal work culture

      Cons

      They tolerate bullying, which unfortunately can override all the positives. Interesting to see that bullying comes up in a lot of these reviews, too.

      "Most toxic workplace I have ever encountered"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Sydney

        I have been working at Roche full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Nothing comes to mind... perhaps the new office.

        Cons

        Workplace bullying is rampant, toxic environment, blame culture. If you are not in the inner circle of management it doesn’t matter what you say or do, you won’t get anywhere. The favourites can step on as many people as they like.

        Advice to Management

        Break up the cliques. Perhaps staff need more work if they have time to constantly critisize and slander other staff.
