Does Roche offer dental insurance?

Pros

Benefits: 401k, dental, vision, time off

Cons

Toxic management within the shared service center. Annual reviews and merit/bonuses go to those who work the least amount in the department but can talk a good talk. Managers don’t show appreciation to those who do their jobs or those who go above and beyond. Those who do go above and beyond get compensated less than those who talk about everything they do. (When those people probably work 20 hours a week then add overtime to their time cards)

Advice to Management

Really take a look at who is doing the work on the team. It isn’t always the ones who talk a good game. Actually look at the metrics you pull, the meetings with stakeholders the individual handle, get genuine peer reviews with those who work with the person. Stop playing favorites because someone “looks good and presents themselves well”. If the person who does the best work isn’t the one who presents themself well, teach them. Constantly giving those who don’t deserve opportunities promotions and bonuses doesn’t get the job done.

Does Roche offer parental leave?

Pros

Friendly culture and experienced colleagues, great benefits (incl. health insurance, extra paid leave for all), remote work has been common (in our country) even before pandemic. Meaningful work in healthcare.

Cons

Company has been slow to transform, processes take up a lot of time, difficult to find new career opportunities within the company if not interested in relocating to Basel. Seems like most countries are still not fully open to permanent remote work.

Advice to Management

Expedite transformation by hiring more digital talent from outside the industry.
