Meet Bejoy Baby, Senior Consultant Technical & Application
Where did you study?
I did my entire education in Tamil Nadu, India right up to my Ph.D.
In which Roche location are you currently working?
Currently I’m working in India…to be precise in Kolkata one of our regional offices.
What can you tell us about that location?
I moved to Kolkata around 2 years back…kind of a newbie as far as the city is concerned. I stay on southern fringes of the city in a small gated community roughly 10 kms away and approximate a 45 minutes’ drive from the office which is located in the East Kolkata township. The EM Bypass area (where the office is located) as it is called is a fast upcoming business corridor in Kolkata.
Why did you decide to join Roche?
After completing my Ph.D I had the option of teaching or continuing my research. I met a Roche employee during this period and my interaction with him made me decide that this is where I would love to work. That employee went on to become one of my closest and dearest friends.
What is your current job?
Since inception of my career, I have been in Professional Services. I am currently working as Sr. Consultant – Technical & Application for Roche Diagnostics India into Professional Services Division and I am responsible for the Eastern part of India.
We currently monitor all service related activities in the region which includes customer complaint service, instrument maintenance, scientific support, training both internal and customers, spare part management and documentation.
What makes it such a great job?
One word – People.
Can you pick at least three of the attributes of Roche and explain in detail what they mean to you?
Products: We have the best quality products in the world. This means that you know you are working for a company that takes pride in what they do and the results speak for themselves. Innovation is integrated into the Roche culture which means we are future proof as well.
Respect: Respect is everything. Respect within the organization for each and every employee is very high. For me to know that everyone’s opinion counts is in itself a very high order of respect.
Outside I can hold my head high when I say I work for Roche - the market leader, the respect you get professionally is tremendous.
Development opportunities: Roche allows us to grow and take up opportunities that are diverse and challenging. There are opportunities not only in your country of work but also worldwide.
Please complete the following sentence:
Roche is a great place to work because…… the development plan for each employee is meticulously followed which allows you to evolve both personally and professionally, which provides immense growth and satisfaction.
How would you describe the people working here?
People in this organization are what make this one of the best jobs. I have never seen a bunch of motivated, self-driven and passionate people anywhere. The culture of a company decides how their employee’s general frame of mind is. Roche has always had a very rich and rewarding culture for their employees especially for those who are consistent performers.
What would you advise job seekers who want to join us?
Roche is one of the best companies to work for. The work culture focuses on both professional and personal development of the employee. The limits of what we can do and become in this organization is only limited by our potential. Those who have the Integrity, Courage and Passion….the future of healthcare awaits.
