    Bayer review

    Professional Pharmaceutical Sales Representative, Specialty (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more flexible and open to input from sales people.

    Very Good Company, Really Nice People, Respectful Management, Slow Growth Opp's

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Morristown, NJ

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsPeople 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 Senior ManagementFor 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.

    Great place to work if you have time

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Morristown, NJ

    ProsGreat pay, good culture, good brands, good benefits

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

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

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

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Morristown, NJ

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

    Consstill 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 Senior Managementlook 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    an "OK" place to work

    Associate Brand Manager (Former Employee)
    Morristown, NJ

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

    ConsNot 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 Senior ManagementSenior 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.

    BCC has a wonderful, friendly culture

    Senior Manager, HQ Sales (Current Employee)
    Morristown, NJ

    ProsBayer has accumulated great people from all over the CPG/OTC industry and put them together in one place. The culture is supportive and one can almost always assume positive intent. Great pains are taken to ensure continued employee growth and development. Random firings or layoffs are unimaginable, and the comapny reorganizations take place less frequently than at competitors and with less attrition.

    ConsThe great culture and low turnover allow the company to underpay vs other consumer pharma and make it more difficult to advance. Many departments are top-heavy. The company is slow to get rid of employees who are on the wrong bus, despite how obvious it may be to those around them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue building the organization globally, but don't let the US organization plateau and/or wither or you will lose the talent pipeline. The personnel are already in place to build a much larger US operation, all that's needed are the right acquisitions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
