Case Investigation and Resolution (CIR) Scientist (Former Employee) –  CIR officeOctober 9, 2018
My time there has been great! Very helpful people. The guidelines lead your overall workflow but it allows for individual input as well from time to time. The office is a very inclusive place and I am happy to have been a part of it.

Being a contractor sucks
Quality (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 5, 2018
If you are a full time Roche employee, you have a lot of opportunities but if you are a contractor, there is a lack. There is a push for team work but you can't be a team when a team member feels like they aren't part of the team.

Overall
Inside Sales Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Fishers, INOctober 1, 2018
Overall, it is an amazing company, however, it is all about "who you know", and "who you have networked with," not based on hard work, work ethics and performance. I believe that positions should be given based on these factors, not on "playing the game."
Pros
Great environment, great people
Cons
Political

Tense, competitive workplace
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 20, 2018
I was a contracted employee with Roche in the Accounts Payable office. A typical day involved processing invoices and responding to vendor inquiries. All accounts payable employees report to their own supervisor who then reports to one shared manager and director. The individual supervisors were not good leaders and often caused problems/arguments with gossip and pettiness. The work environment was very cut throat, with contract employees fighting over permanent positions. Occasionally there were company events that made it seem more worth it, but overall it was not a happy place to work.

Roche
Service Deliver Manager/Senior Voice Engineer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 18, 2018
Roche has excellent benefits and work life balance. They do provide training each year to improve our skill sets. The only problem I have with the company is the constant worry of your job moving out of the country.

Great place to work
Sr. Incentive Compensation Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco Bay Area, CASeptember 7, 2018
I really enjoyed working at Roche and only pursued an opportunity outside due to an opportunity to build a department from the ground up. I had career growth, a "voice at the table", and was well compensated. As a larger company, there were times when advancement criteria did not appear to be as consistently applied, but that will happen just about anywhere where there are multiple layers of hierarchy. The culture in my department emphasized work balance and allowed for working from home on frequent occasions as long as the work quality did not suffer.

Fun place, but Genentech and long-term Roche employees dominate the culture and promotions
Production Manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CASeptember 7, 2018
Great company that has some difficult barriers. Genentech rules Roche here in the US. Too many promotions are given to 'pre-determined' employees rather than local or internal sourcing. Promotions are driven by a strange rubric utilized for advancement. Difficult to meet the needs and are subjective based upon your reviewer... Not the best way. Performance Evaluations (at any company) should be done by committee rather than one individual; more democratic process.
Pros
Great group of people at Roche, flexible but depends on who your manager is, should be a corporate culture shift for morale boost, more internal career development is necessary
Cons
Favoritism is quite evident across the globe at a corporate level.
