      Pros

      Innovation focus. Great development pipeline. Good culture and people. Lots of opportunities for career development, especially if willing to move internationally.

      Cons

      An increased focus on process and compliance is slowing things down, making it harder to work internally and externally, although senior management are aware and working to reduce.

      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.

      Pros

      - Good compensation - Strong culture with a good balance between performance and people focus - Strong talent - Strong pipeline

      Cons

      - is currently in a Transformation process towards agility but especially senior management mindset has not shifted (pseudo empowerment that leads to a situation where nobody knows who makes decisions) - Global HQ has a strong culture with strong talent while Roche Germany (Grenzach) is more an old school command & control culture - While diversity is high on the agenda (which is good), it seems to be solely focused on gender rather than different cultural backrounds (e.g. Emerging markets) and very much shaped around a single minded US/Genentech culture that does not feel very diverse
