Meet Rodel, Field Service Engineer at Roche Philippines

Tell us a bit about yourself.

Previously I worked as a Service Engineer for radiology instruments in a local company. The work wasn’t very challenging. I got bored and decided to find a similar job. That’s how I ended up at Roche Phils.

I dream of owning a business someday. To keep myself in shape, I play basketball and do household chores.

Where did you study?

I finished my Electronics and Communications Engineering degree in Adamson University last March 2002 and got my license on November of the same year.

In which Roche location are you currently working?

I am currently working at the Diagnostics Division of Roche Philippines Inc.

What can you tell us about that location?

Diagnostics Division transferred to a new office in a classy business district located in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, Metro Manila.

Why did you decide to join Roche?

I joined Roche because it is such a big and prestigious company and is one of the world leaders in healthcare ( pharma and diagnostics ). It feels good to be in Roche.

What is your current job?

I belong to the Professional Services of Diagnostics Division. It’s one of the busiest group since we have to support customers on a 24/7 basis. I am responsible for technical service of Roche diagnostics instruments I install, troubleshoot, analyze instrument problems, repair and perform instrument refurbishing.

What makes it such a great job

Working in technical services is such a great job because I learn things every day and it enables me to continuously grow and adapt to changes. My work offers a lot of challenges. I became more responsible, results-oriented and more mature in this company. Roche has given me the opportunity to have a training outside of the country and I was once assigned to work in another affiliate for half a year.

Can you pick at least three of the attributes of Roche and explain in detail what they mean to you?

  • products: Roche’s innovative products are market leaders, whether they are from Diagnostics or Pharma.
  • future career opportunities: Roche offers a lot of career opportunities . Employees are given a chance to work in another affiliate and the training and experience obtained are beneficial both to the employee and the company.
  • organizational stability: Roche is already an established world leader in the healthcare industry and continues to grow. It is for this reason that I feel secure working in Roche.

Please complete the following sentence:

Roche is a great place to work because... there are so much challenges and surprises you will experience every day.
