As an intern, I valued the access to research leaders and I found that everyone is willing to talk about their experiences. People here (at Roche) are interested in and want to help their colleagues find career paths regardless of titles or experiences. Interning also helped me build my network and allowed me to make strong connections around the company.
The place to Work
Every day, our employees make the decision to come to work and support our vision of “Doing now what patients need next.” As a company, we pride ourselves on being a Great Place to Work by having an environment that encourages employee growth and development and offering opportunities for everyone to grow their careers at Roche.
Exposure to multiple groups and mentors allowed Jen the networking opportunity to come back every summer while attending school.
I used the Roche mentoring workshop to help me think through how mentoring can help me now in my professional life. Peers, managers and HR were supportive as I used the tools, and distilled what I wanted to do at Roche. I had access to and took advantage of the career planning workshops, the mentoring program and my colleagues’ guidance. All of these together have helped me to plan my career with Roche.
