    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, friendly co-workers, decent work/life balance

    Cons

    Supervisors hire friends instead of most qualified people! A few years ago, hiring was based on seniority. Employees were more satisfied as they knew as long as they were good workers, they could move into other positions in a set time frame. Now, supervisors can hire whoever they want regardless of the qualified employees who are already employed with Bayer!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to hiring people based on seniority- things were done more fairly then!

    Pros

    There are the upsides that come from working for Big Pharma. Bayer has a very Good Training program - Reps are armed with skills to do the job. Bayer marketing department is very good. Reps get very good sales tools, and marketing responds to needs voiced by the field. As a rep, the benefits are standard - car, insurance, 401K. These are great. Bayer hires - most of the time - good people - peers are supportive.

    Cons

    Layoffs, lately, seem to come more frequently. Very sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
