    Pros

    Good work/life balance with an engaging workload. Just enough work to push you to do more and progress within the company.

    Cons

    None that are worth mentioning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you go the extra mile to recognise the staff putting in the extra mileage for the company. This doesn't always happen.

    There are no real downsides except the culture shock when moving hear from America where people tend to be more friendly upon first meeting them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to see more women in leadership roles as it does sometimes appear to be somewhat an old boys club.

    I worked at Roche

    Pros

    Everyone here in this company that I have work with was on key to their jobs, and know how and it was a good place to work with people and all the events that went on within the company and outside the company. It was just a big happy family, everything was up to date in software and equipments to classes and training if you wanted too.

    Cons

    I can't say too much about any cons cause the only cons I can mention when it was stormly wealther outside the company at time was still open to bad wealther, but we all some how manage to come in and that was about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the managers that i have work with was great and made you feel wanted in their department and pretty much how it was with all the manager and upper head dept was with all employees
