    Impact on the world you have, and the inclusive culture that generates a sense of belonging and caring.

    Try not to take the purpose of the company home with you, and ensure you switch off from the great work we are doing, so you can keep coming back and bringing your best to the challenges we face.

    Former Employee - Diabetes Services (Not Providing Full Title) in Burgess Hill, England

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    excellent supportive staff, nice offices, resonable pay and benefits,

    Cons

    Diabetes care is a disaster zone at present, wholesale redundancies (50+ out of 140 staff) jobs awarded without due process to whomevers face fits, very poor staff moral due to uncertanty of role and financial situation, appaling behaviour by some senior management who are rude, conceited and incapable of perfoming role, ( or just unable to perform their role). senior management who boast about their salaries and... the value of their expense account whilst people are being made redundant. very slow to market, new services and offerings 2-3 years late, massive market errosion, not a place to work at present, steer clear as you wont/cant make a difference

    Advice to Management

    weed out the senior mangement who are conceited, arrogant and incapable. ensure that global products are fit for purpose and ready for the uk market, not 2 years late. products are no longer market leading, just also rans in a crowded market place which offer neither value nor technical advancement
