Glassdoor is now a major source of information for job seekers, and employers should take note.  Diversity and Inclusion is the latest feature available on Glassdoor.  Whilst it is a new feature, both companies so far have mixed feedback. 

The results were very similar between Roche and Novartis, which is a fair reflection.  

Be sure to add Glassdoor to your job search strategy.

Good luck and take care,
