Meet Gintautas, Technical Service Manager Lithuania
Tell us a bit about yourself:
My friends describe me as good-mood organizer, an entertainment director. I think I am a friendly, tolerant and communicative person. In work I am surrounded by many people, and I have a gift for listening and understanding them. That is why my door’s always open, and colleagues are always coming to me for advice, but usually I’m just listening to their problems and they are finding the solution themselves. I think I am a good psychologist But from time to time I like to be in silence and spend my time in nature. I am an active person. I like all kinds of sport: bodybuilding, tennis, bicycling, basketball or skiing in the winter. My credo is to take on everything life offers you. I’m a very positive person who almost never says “no”. I am also a very responsible person, and people always can count on me.
Where did you study?
I studied in Kaunas Technology University, electronic engineering. In my childhood I loved to play with my father’s electronic tools, and then in my teen years I started my first radio engineering steps, soldered some simple schemes. It was not hard to choose where I wanted to study and who I want to become. After graduating university I started working in a technical laboratory and started my managing career. I found that I still needed some more knowledge and got a master’s degree in Public Administration.
In which Roche location are you currently working?
I’m working in very nice country, Lithuania. Here we have a lot of rain in the autumn, a lot of sun in the summer, a lot of snow in the winter and lot of love in the spring. In the world we are known as basketball country and strong man’s country. And in daily life we are very warm, nice and friendly people.
Why did you decide to join Roche?
I was searching for a company where I could realize my ideas. A company that could offer you as much as you are giving back. A company with the culture and respect for people, with the values that correspond to mine.
What is your current job?

We are a creative team and always searching and implementing innovative solutions for customers.

First, I think it is the company culture and of course the people who are working here. Everybody working here gives their whole heart to what they do. Inside the company you have a feeling that you are in a big family where everybody is happy, and open to help you or give you advice.
Can you pick one of the attributes of Roche and explain in detail what they mean to you?
For me, most important are the development opportunities the company offers. You will never feel bored or stagnant at the same place. The company creates the environment where new ideas can flourish. If you are enthusiastic and want to actualize yourself, have ideas how to do things better, the company will help you to develop and realize them.
