company made of dedicated, highly self moitvated employees
Service Provider Coordinator - IT Lead Analyst (Former Employee), Nutley, NJJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: was treated well; good culture
Cons: years of re-structuring and layoffs
The job was always challenging and exciting. I was never doing the same thing every day. The people were mostly very dedicated, highly motivated and team oriented. Most people would help each other out and work together.
The hardest part of my job was meeting the aggressive timeframes to get projects done with limited budget.
The best part of my job – more... was interacting with different people both within the company and external vendors. – less

Roche was a wonderful place to work and I am very disappointed with the decision to close the site.
Compliance Manager /Senior Associate Scientist (Current Employee), Nutley, NJJanuary 16, 2014
Roche was a wonderful place to work. The department that I worked in was known for having great team effort in all the projects that were given to us. My job as Compliance Manager was to make sure everyone in the department was trained and that their procedures and documentation were compliant with all necessary regulations (GLP, FDA, Safety). My work – more... was challenging and the hardest part of my job was to try to keep to the 100% compliant level. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers on projects. We worked as a team to get the project done and also enjoyed each other along the way. – less

Typical Day
Senior Procurement Specialist (Current Employee), Nutley, NJNovember 5, 2013
Pros: great work environment with an open door policy
Cons: communication gaps
Checking my computer for emails and meetings, followed by a toasted bagel and a cup of tea. Then I get down to work. I am scoping how my procurement (purchasing, contract management, and supplier management) should look today. The culture/work environment is tremendous. The people are hard working and respectful. Hardest part of the job I would say – more... is learning about the different categories. I’ve gone from buying raw materials to just about anything. I love the challenge, the people, and the fact that what my organisation does is visible. I find it rewarding to see something that I have created or purchased being used. – less

A great place to work
Scheduling Administrato (Former Employee), Clifton, NJOctober 28, 2013
Pros: free breakfast/lunches and siminars on new medicines being made
Cons: laid off
My day consists of scheduling appointments for computers to be upgraded for new software for employees. I learned how to upgrade software in the IT department, now I have the knowledge that I didn't have before. Management was very helpful and mindful to your needs in the work place. Co-workers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job was – more... that the position/department was eliminated. The most enjoyable part was having the opportunity to work there. – less

Hoffmann-La Roche has a history of slow responses to environmental changes.
Associate Principal Scientist, DMPK (Former Employee), Nutley, NJJuly 6, 2013
Pros: some good benefits such as onsite child care etc.
Cons: healthcare plan has been watered down over the years
Whether it be technology implementations or capital investments in disease areas Hoffmann-La Roche has always been too conservative when it came to change. They were always the last of the large pharma companies to adopt new ideas.

Great place to work - wish the Nutley Site was not closing!

Dedicated Senior Executive Assistant with over 25 years experience. Dealt with Senior Management and many different personality types. Enjoyed my daily job duties (see resume).
