Cons: not enough hr generalists to serve all employees, many have experienced hr generalists are pro-manager, employee has to fully substantiate above and beyond their issue while manager does not, if you get bullied by a manager, be careful - there are no policies regarding bullying, some directors blindly believe and support their managers
I learned a lot by working at Roche; It is a great place to work! It's organizational structure internationally is strong and makes sense. My co-workers were professional and truly enjoyed a team environment. My role was supporting the system and users, which I truly enjoyed. My manager was great for the majority of my employment. The last year was awful, as a new manager came on board. I experienced bullying for the first time in my life. On my team we implemented several system changes, sometimes overlapping projects with upgrades, with no breaks, and at times working on holidays or very late. Many could say that it could have been the hardest part of the job, but it wasn't. It was the most satisfying! The hardest part, was the bullying that I experienced for over one year, which was completely unnecessary. Still, I hold a positive attitude and will not fault Roche for one individual. The bully actually moved on, and didn't even last long in the role.
