My work helps Roche to develop a new active pharmaceutical ingredient for patients with breast cancer. More specifically, the aim of my work is to deliver new small molecules considered as impurities in a new API.
The place to Work
Roche is an innovative company offering various training programmes and internships for young graduates. From my short stay, I believe that Roche is careful with its employees' work-life balance.
At the beginning of my internship, I was quickly integrated into the teams. And if I had any questions or needed help, there was always someone to help in a nice way. At Roche, the working atmosphere is great.
The workplace culture at Roche is based on trust, respect, motivation, support and open-mindedness.
I am working at the Basel headquarters. This location is very modern and impressive: many people from all kinds of professional fields are working on this site.
The lab team I am part of has a nice, quiet office directly near the laboratory. The laboratory, where I spend the main part of my days, is big, clean and very well equipped. There is everything you need on site, such as restaurants. I had the opportunity to go to the top of the Roche Tower, which is the highest office building in Switzerland - the view is amazing ;)
