    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Salary & bonuses are higher than market. The office in Sydney is really nice. The occasional person that works there is nice, but most are not.

    Cons

    The culture is very much blame oriented, you need to do all in your power to blame someone else for anything, everything. There is also a culture of workplace bullying which is overlooked and openly tolerated. Watch your back.

    Advice to Management

    Break up the senior management cliques. Have a second opinion on who is promoted, they all look after their friends and only promote from within their social circles.

    I worked at Roche full-time

    Pros

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

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