  1. Run for the door! F/S does not pay well at all nor do they offer raises no matter how long you've worked here!

    I worked at Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    benefit package/friendly environment/flexible schedule

    Friendly environment but mostly fake throughout!

    Cons

    F/S does not offer raises, I repeat Run for the door, F/S does not offer raises after working here 1 or 2 years. I guess they figured they would use you until you drop. Do you have bills? That isn't of any concern to them. As long as upper management maintains great relationship with newly partnered clients and continue expanding their client base, that's all that matters. there aren't enough available tools to help get the job done simply because they do not like to waste money. Job board site credentials are all shared, no one has their own individual login for sourcing purposes. Talk about economical? Also, explain how a company like this who refuses to invest in tools will invest in valuable employees who by the way have recently started dropping like flies. Recent Military-like type of environment, favoritism with lots of butt kissing, management is only concerned with what benefits themselves, high turn over rate with low pay, continuous promises but no raise, overworked(increased responsibilities) but no growth opportunities, increased phoniness yet, lots of glittering white teeth pretty much sums up this company.Why wont valuable employees who by the way, know their worth, stay and continue receiving such poor treatment again? If you do not know your worth, apply here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to learn to treat everyone the same and not favor. Learn to appreciate. Bonuses are good but an increase that is consistent, preferably a raise would be highly desirable. Also, we need more diversity as leads, clearly there are more people of race that exist on this planet. Please note that until you take the time to hear US, the employees of the industry, you will continue to lose valuable employees. Sad but very true.

    I have been working at Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Attractive new facility, nice people, business casual (for now), good amenities, bonus, good compensation, GREAT benefits. The work is interesting. Training courses in-house are offered. Opportunity to work with people from around the world. Company commitment to developing, rather than buying pipeline. Decent job security for this industry.

    Cons

    Increasing corporate atmosphere since moving to the new facility. Despite "open concept" office, collegiality and team orientation are waning as a result of changing corporate culture and drawn-out reorganizations, replaced by jockeying for position, backstabbing, and scapegoating. Company gives lip service to employee development but does not promote from within; instead seeks outside people for management positions. "Analysis paralysis" is often present. Workload often not distributed equitably. "Family-friendly" philosophy seems to only apply to workers with children. Remote work opportunities available only to certain employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start mentoring and developing your more promising younger employees so you can promote from within and keep good people. Greater focus on cross-functional cooperation and knowledge sharing. Foster a work environment where merit is rewarded and those struggling or lazy either receive extra help and mentoring, are moved to another less-demanding group, or let go. Better communication between groups and geographic regions. Shared decision-making between Germany and US.
