    Pros

    Smart, talented, yet humble and friendly people; OTC market leader, lots of development opportunity; modern facility with good fitness center and cafeteria.

    Cons

    Environment is changing from collaborative to top-down following large recent acquisition. Depending on department, meeting-intense environment can require after-hours work to get your job done.

    Pros

    The people at the Memphis R&D site are some of the best people you will ever work with.
    Everyone has an expertise and knows how to work as a team.
    If things would settle down - the amount of work accomplished is amazing!

    Cons

    New company - Bayer Consumer Care purchased Merck.
    Shaky ground for all R&D people
    Everyone must interview for their job again
    No clear direction and no transparency

    Advice to Management

    Clarity and honesty please.
    Don't give dates for delivery of information and change it, repeatedly.

    I have been working at Bayer Consumer Care full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Bayer is a well established company with a recognizable name. Benefits are relatively good and compensation is competitive with rest of industry.

    Cons

    Company is burdened by corporate integrity agreements with the government. Everything must be filtered through Legal.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible and open to input from sales people.

    Pros

    The people are about as nice as you'll find anywhere, the products are usually in the top 3 per category, its a very comfortable environment where everyone is treated with respect.

    Cons

    People don't leave often so growth opportunities are limited, particularly once you reach a certain mgt level. Its a very conservative company, so out of the box thinking is limited. Its a great place to work if you are a woman with a good head on your shoulders, as mgt is EAGER to advance women these days.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, you are doing a great job. Keep looking for rotational opportunities for your employees, strongly encourage (force) employees to broaden their experiences.

  8. Great place to work if you have time

    Pros

    Great pay, good culture, good brands, good benefits

    Cons

    Sr management at CC is lacking leadership abilities. Risk taking is very low. Takes forever and a dozen people to make a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks and make decisions. Don't pawn the accountability and risk off to five different people.

  9. No room for new ideas/thoughts...same of the old

    Pros

    company benefits are ok, culture is made by lower level employees which enhances overall motivation

    Cons

    still driven by old german method of doing business. new innovative ideas to go to business not even listened. hierarchy rules the company from top down. favoritism runs promotions

    Advice to Management

    look at new ways to do business in the US. sometimes change is a progression. ehough with the old, welcome the new. balkema has no clue...others "sugar-coat" the reality of this company

    Pros

    Friendly, Flexible time, not much pressure to get the job done

    Cons

    Not much pressure to get the job done so there is no real necessity to promote top preformers, promotions seems to be based on frienship rahter than achievements

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to focus on their long termi vision rather than on montly sales. Communication top-down should improve or won´t get the best people in the market.
