    I have been working at Bayer AG

    Pros

    The internship program at the Baytown site is well-organized and geared towards educating the students. Supervisors will introduce interns to varied aspects of a chemical process through small projects covering basic unit ops - as is expected - and offer the expertise of senior engineers when the assignments turn hard. Activities, like dinners out and Astros games, are a nice reprieve from the drab Baytown surroundings as well as a chance to meet interns working in other units. The city of Baytown is a typical run-down oil town, and while there isn't much to do except suffer in the summer heat, it is inexpensive.

    Cons

    It's hard to stay busy at work for a number of reasons: managers are afraid of giving too much responsibility or assignments that may not have been covered in school, they're hesitant to bring 3-month hires up to speed on ongoing projects, and they don't want to thrust us in existing groups for fear that, if we don't work out, they'll be responsible. I haven't interned in other facilities, so it's unknown whether the Baytown plant is unique in this regard. At the end of summer, there's a mandatory presentation summarizing our contributions to the company. These two downsides do not go well together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I haven't met senior management and I haven't worked here long enough to form an opinion.

    Pros

    Sehr angenehme Kollegen, sehr viel Unterstützung, interessante Projekte für Praktikanten, gute Integration in der Abteilung und Gelegenheit, Kontakte mit Kollegen aus anderen Abteilungen zu knüpfen

    very nice colleagues, very supportive, interesting projects to work on for interns, good immersion into department and opportunity to connect to colleagues from other departments

    Cons

    Konservativ, nicht sehr flexibel,

    man muss viele Leute um Genehmigungen für neue Ideen und Entscheidungen fragen, bevor Projekte umgesetzt werden können

    conservative, not very flexible,
    many people needed to be asked to approve ideas and decisions before projects can move on to implementation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gebt Mitarbeitern Freiraum und ermutigt sie, Entscheidungen selbst zu treffen, anstatt Genehmigungen von endlosen Befehlsketten einholen zu müssen.

    empower and encourage employees to make decisions themselves instead of asking to follow endless approval chain of commands
