    “Rochelings”, the name given to employees’ children, are well cared for at this provider of in-vitro and tissue-based cancer diagnostics. Last summer, Camp Roche hosted more than 270 kids who met every morning for a free hot breakfast in one of the company’s two cafeterias before heading out to Roche Park, the 45-acre plot on its Indianapolis campus with fishing pond, gazebo, mega pavilion, garden plots, and numerous sports facilities. On Fridays, parents can picnic in the park with their “rochelings,” or get in a quick game of kickball before heading back to the office. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
