To me, cultural diversity is not an obstacle, but instead a fascinating aspect.
Rob R., Pharma Technical Operations Department Penzberg
"I have been working at Roche/Genentech for 17 years already, and for the last three years, I have worked in Penzberg at Pharma Technical Operations. This is my first stay in Germany, and it has been going very well so far. This is, above all, due to the great support from Roche. HR Mobility offers a variety of supporting measures both globally and at the individual sites. In my opinion, it is quite obvious that Roche Deutschland is striving to increase its pool of international colleagues in Germany, and thus is also smoothing the way for them. And finally, I think that a major portion of the support in the workplace comes from one's direct supervisor and from the team, which has been really great for me. Of course I have noticed a few small cultural differences during my time in Germany. Many are also only clichés that don't even apply to most of my colleagues. To me, cultural diversity is not an obstacle, but instead a fascinating aspect. In a global company with multi-cultural teams and team leads it is important to understand them and make use of the advantages. I am totally happy with my decision to work for Roche in Germany, and I am in no hurry to give up such a great workplace. This is why I used the opportunity and accepted a job in Mannheim at the beginning of May. Thus, I will stick around in Germany for a bit longer."
