"Amount of managment turn-over in 2.5 years left a lack of direction and stability."

What do you like about working at Roche?

"The sales training was exceptional. I truly enjoyed establishing real relationships with customers and prospects within my territory."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Make certain that you interview, or have the occasion to meet as many of the key players you will be working with in the position. That may include a Technical Specialist, several Field Engineers, more than one type of Sales Representative, in addition to the hiring RBM and Regional Director. Your success really does depend on good relationships with all of these people."

What don't you like about working at Roche?

"The team sales approach was not always an optimal environment. Often two members of a team would have goals which conflicted. This approach has been abandoned, and I believe the sales team is much more effective."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stability! Determine why there was such high turn-over in management (two different RBMs, two different RDs and three different VP of S&M) within 2.5 years, and find solutions. As the people on the front lines, it is extremely difficult to achieve goals which are constantly changing."

Roche Employee

"Personal experience - pharma Roche, painful and disappointing."

What do you like about working at Roche?

"I had generally very supportive colleagues , knowledgeable and friendly, had the opportunity to learn a lot, attend scientific meetings and advance my career. I enjoyed working there for the first year, until they changed the management for a very poor one."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"If you think you can work in fear and do not need recognition and acknowledgment , go on and interview for Roche pharma. If you are speaking with a foreign accent - forget about working at Roche. If you are like 85 % of workers in US and enjoy working not in fear, but while being valued and acknowledged, your place is not at Roche pharma."

What don't you like about working at Roche?

"As a foreign national I faced unbelievable discrimination , often hatred, and condescendence on a regular basis in the Medical Affairs. I was called names, mistreated, and my outstanding contributions were not acknowledged most of the time by the management I had during the second year. I was discriminated against and put down and humiliated on a regular basis, although my background in science , contributions to science and awards obtained before Roche were/are truly excellent. The environment at Roche US Medical Affairs was, during my stay there, one of inducing fear. The employees were fearful, not functioned to be acknowledged and respected."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"The management of Pharma Medical Affairs needs to learn from other inclusive companies about ethics, fair treatment, non-discriminatory policy, and other related issues. They are losing talent. More than 40 % of medical and health care workers in US are foreign graduates, many of them outstanding. This % is nowhere to be found at Roche pharma, and most of pharma in US anyway. The managment of pharma at Roche treats other nationalities with arrogance and discrimination, without looking closely to the talent they lock out."
