Marketing Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON17 December 2017
Flexible hours, good worklife balance but Management needs to be revisited. Company cuts corners when it comes to employee development such as training or seminars. However, money is allocated to areas that seem to benefit the managers.
Pros
Worklife Balance
Cons

Technical Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Sindh10 November 2017
Every day while coming out of my bed in the morning i ask myself "what's next?" and their was not even a single day when i don't get a reply. "Doing now what patient needs next" that's the core component at Roche that keeps us moving. For every extraordinary effort you put you get appreciation, acknowledgement, flexible timings. Its not just a platform to learn but also to earn respect, love and care.
Pros
People engagement, dinner, gifts, highly paid incentive, flexible time, appreciation, applause

Training and introduction to the world of health care.
Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Northern Ontario14 October 2017
The position at Hoffman was the same as at Merck and Impress Pharma. I "cut my teeth" here and was able to learn how to effectively promote products and services to health care professionals in Northern Ontario.
I developed strong relationships and was very well received by my customers due to my knowledge, win-win-win solutions and pro-active approach to territory dynamics and corporate culture.
Pros
New challenges
Cons
Quick turnover

Housekeeping (Current Employee) –  Knutsford, BC13 September 2017
I enjoy my time there, as keep returning each season, worked there for three years now, great staff. A typical day at work, we know our positions there, and help out with anything else that is required to better the Resort, I learned how to paint boats and apply stencils. Both managements have been great. We work as a team, hardest part of the job was this season lifting heavy boats from shop to grounds. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendly staff, most have returned each year. The most enjoyable part of the job is the happy quests, who return each year, and at a very beautiful resort and lake. Great fishing.
Pros
We make our own schedual amonst us house keepers, sunday buffet free for staff.
Cons
No direct deposits, if not on schedual on payday, and you need your paycheck, you half to drive there to pick up.

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  National Capital Region26 July 2017
A very well known company that is great with Diagnostics and Pharmaceutical for personalized healthcare.The company is a great place to stay, great work life balance and great packages the only downside sometimes is your ability to work in their company abroad is very slim because you must first be a citizen in order for you to get hired even if you have the skills.

Quality Compliance Specialist (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON14 March 2017
Hoffmann-La Roche is a great company to work for. The management is open-minded and accommodating to any personal life events that may occur. The workplace culture is quite warm and welcoming. They have an amazing gym with fabulous instructors who are ready to help you with your fitness goals. Hoffmann-La Roche is really honing in on the work-life balance by allowing flexible hours of work and also flexible locations at work so that you are not tied to your desk all day. Overall, Hoffmann-la Roche is the best company I have worked for so far.
Pros
Great people!
Cons
Too many office treats going about - which can be awful for the waistline.

on représente une bonne marque et un bon produit
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Quebec8 February 2017
c'est une bonne carte et marque de produit qu'on la représente ce qui nous facilite la tache, le problème est au niveau "management" puisqu'ils n'ont pas une bonne approche pour commercialiser le produit et ils doivent revissés leur étude du marché.
de plus ils doivent reconsidérés le niveau social des salariés
Pros
assurance maladie et confiance
Cons
mauvaise ambillance de travail

Environnement agréable et professionnel
Chef de chantier (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC11 January 2017
Mon expérience chez Roche, le seul maître paysagiste de l'île de Montréal, à été très bénéfique pour moi. J'ai acquis beaucoup d'expérience en tant qu'ouvrier paysagiste et ensuite en tant que chef de chantier, dont j'ai été promus 4 mois après mon arrivée au sein de l'entreprise. Malgré les 50 à 65 heures de travail par semaine, grâce à l'esprit d'équipe que nous avions moi, mes collègues paysagiste et mon patron les semaines et les mois de travail ont passés très rapidement. Mon patron m'a appris beaucoup sur le métiers avec ses 27 ans d'expérience dans le domaine. La création d'aménagement paysager est devenue ma passion, j'adore travailler à l'extérieur, travaillé manuellement et voir le visage satisfait de nos clients à la fin des travaux. Cette passion m'a été donné grâce à cette compagnie.
Pros
avantages sociaux très compétitifs par apport aux autres compagnies de paysagement

Old school hierarchy, little innovation
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Mississuaga16 November 2016
Roche is very hierarchy driven with self important Vice Presidents running around puffed out. If you can get a job in the global part of the business, they seem much more relaxed and full of great ideas and innovate all the time. You do not want to work for the sales and marketing, corporate affairs, etc. unless you like little advancement or development and puffed up VPs.
