    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Roche full-time

    Pros

    Substantial resources Good reputation among physicians Opportunities for development Adept at identifying takeover targets

    Cons

    Extremely political work environment. Truth is a negotiable concept. Upper management are very disconnected from the realities of the business. R&D has had very limited success in Europe (luckily Genentech & Chugai are effective).

    Advice to Management

    Tone down the inspirational leader emphasis and focus more on the basics. Avoid the bureaucratic creep of box ticking. Your career advancement should not be your sole focus.
