My job was 24/7 division in Diabetes Care

I liked my job but left because changes were made that decreased my bonuses/shift pay as well as policy changes that made me feel uneasy. I understand the changes and I’m sure they worked out in time. I just decided not to stay for the rough times.

Don't take a contract in IT at Roche, you won't get hired

While my time at Roche as a contractor in IT was not stressful, it was about as dead end as it gets. I took a position in Site IT that was pitched as very likely contract to hire with no benefits or PTO, but literally one of the first things one of my new teammates told me was don't hold out hope to be hired in. Gradually I started to see experienced IT people running out their three year contracts, and that was it for them. I also started to learn that Roche treats its contractors like second class citizens, from having to use your lunch hour to attend the company Christmas party, to management's indifference to my presence or career goals. I luckily found another job quickly with a great company, and having Roche on my resume MIGHT have been ammo on my resume. Other than that I drew a paycheck for nine months and grew very little. If you're looking for a job I guess that kind of environment might be acceptable. If you're looking for a career..... I'd keep looking and find something better.

Pros

Low stress, narrow swim lane

Cons

No hope for hire from contract, management doesn't care

Productive

There was a genuine spirit of cooperation and shared goals all revolving around helping the customer that I have not found at other corporations.I worked full-time on a flexible schedule, both in and out-of-office.I worked hard to maintain that level of trust, which keeps me engaged and excited — but at the same time, I love that my job enables me to love and enjoy my other passions in life.It was always changing — always evolving — and I got front row seats watching the process of a simple idea grow into a nationwide business. Every day was different, and it was a constant adventure.

Amazing benefits

Loved working at Roche (Mississauga, Canada). Compensation, benefits and perks are unparalleled in the industry. Although it is very known that some departments are VERY slow to ensure the growth and advancement of their people.

Pros

Compensation, benefits, perks, work culture

Cons

Career advancement is hindered by politics and inexperienced leadership

Experience doesn't matter!

Losing skilled staff which is very unfortunate. The company is constantly transforming. There is no job security. Hard to get promoted unless you are young. Experience doesn't matter at this company. Don't get too comfortable.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Always changing leaders

Roche Diagnostics

Management, like its own company, has the mentality of offering false beauty with its own personal ambitions, basing everything on evil. The messages given are fake facts. Unfortunately, the Swiss Headquarters misunderstand this so-called administration with misinformation. The facts will emerge sooner or later. Supposedly, this management team should be under immediate investigation.

Contingency to full time conversation needs re-assessed

I really wish Roche would do straight conversions from contingent to full time. Right now you have to interview for the same position you are doing. You may or may not get the full time position. It’s sad and discouraging when you have to interview for the same position you are already hired in.

Una empresa muy exigente con su empleados pero con una cultura corporativa muy humana e justa.

Attraktiver Arbeitgeber

Nach der Übernahme 1997, wurden in Mannheim zunächst viele Arbeitsplätze ganz abgebaut bzw. an andere Standorte transferiert. Mittlerweile hat der Standort durch die Umwandlung zum Produktions- und Logistikzentrum mit mehr Arbeitnehmern als je zuvor, zu einem attraktiven Arbeitgeber in der Region entwickelt

Pros

Sichere Arbeitsplätze

Cons

Betriebliche Altersvorsorge wurde komplett auf die Arbeitnehmer abgegeben

Company work atmosphere

Company work atmosphere is great however .. as all works does ... toxic people exists and disturb work life of enthusiastic workers who really want to succeed and show good example .. that would create jealousy of toxic people who starts to play dirty and create a lot of politics ... !. that pain needs to carry along while running forward with positivity to overcome the obstacles and grow

Micromanagement to the ninth degree.

Decent place to work before most overtime was eliminated in early March 2020. Many managers had poor communication skills. Managers seemed to have a lot of time with the company, but actually lack any management skills. There seems to be micromanagement of their beat employees that bordered on bullying or harassment.

Pros

Free hot and cold water. Monthly snacks at production meeting.

Cons

Work a morning shift every other Saturday after working on Friday night.

Excellent place to work

I cannot say enough good things about Roche. The company is moving through transformation right now so the environment is a bit stressful based on fear of the unknown but also exciting to see what comes! I work in field sales and my teammates are absolutely tremendous as colleagues and friends and my manager is brilliant and very supportive. Lots of opportunity for advancement especially for the young and extremely motivated folks: less so for those later in our careers. Extremely proud to work here ad the company focuses on innovative solutions for the patient, delight of the customer as well as the health and wellness of all of its employees.

Pros

Excellent benefits and overall treatment of employees

Cons

None
