Productive and fun place, albeit, no ping pong table

Groovy stuff going on there. Loved all my co-workers. Some of them didn't love me so much, obviously. But that's their loss. It was fun to contribute to the organization.

great workplace

This is a great company to work for. They try to make employees happy most of the time. the application process could be a little easier and not have a system picking applications.

Congenial working atmosphere

I consider Roche as my second home since I have worked for Roche USA for 10 years and Roche Basel for 4 years. My experiences were positive with easy access for managers, when needed. Most enjoyable part was collaborating with my teammates. Hardest part was working in toxicology and pathology where animals were sacrificed for research purposes.

Pros

13th check

Cons

short lunches

Responsibilities grew each year then was downsized

Became jack of all trades over the years in the role and had eventual difficulty with work / life balance due to number of responsibilities. Management was good at listening.

Such a big improvement

Every day, I helped my team with different kinds of works. At that time, Roche had a new drug to come into the market. I worked with my leader to join meeting with governmental officials, and made sure that the drug could be in the market soon.

Employees Treated with Respect

Roche was a great place to work for. Everyday, we always had a task to complete. The bulk of my work consisted of scanning laboratory notebooks accurately and confidentially, while performing quality checks on other people's work. The work was always organized and evenly distrubuted between co-workers. Roche was a clean place with plenty of perks for employees, such as a great, convenient cafeteria. I knew when I was hired that the job was temporary because the branch itself was closing down. However, if given the chance to work for a company like this again, I would definitely take that opportunity.

Pros

Free lunches, Large campus, Clean environment
