    Treated well and paid fairly

    Front Line (Current Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsBayer is always about the science and making solid products that the public can trust. It's evident in the culture and people who work here.

    ConsSometimes they push a little too hard for more sales but do hope their expectations will become more realistic

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your front line people. If you hired the right ones, they will be straight with you.

    A company that focuses on growth

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDuring my time at Bayer, I felt I was able to grow in my position. My manager listed to me and where I wanted to go with my career and took all steps necessary to help me get there.

    There is a great focus on work-life balance so you do not feel like you're living at your job or feel bad for taking a day off. A work from home option is provided which is great as well.

    ConsI don't have any cons to list.

    Decent place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI liked getting Bayer products at the site store for super cheap. Company ran very well and was organized. Adequate staffing.

    ConsBenefits were not too great. Compensation was low. Had to leave to get a decent raise. I'm sure there's others.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more in touch and communicate with employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A company that is embracing change in a downturned economy.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsMany groups are able to work remotely from home several days a week. There is a good life-work balance from what I can see. Good exposure to senior leadership on a monthly basis.

    ConsIt is difficult to make connections outside of your department which leads to a feeling of stagnation. Managers have the power to put a stop to any promotion growth by citing anything they want on a performance review.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more transparent in your decision making processes. The rumor mills are continually validated by outside reporting - it would be nice to hear something a day before it is released to the public.

    Great company with excellent culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSomewhat laid-back and family-like culture. Great people. Exceptional leadership. A very successful company with great legacy and lots of room to grow. They care about their employees.

    ConsA very German-centric organization that sometimes gets too caught up in processes and the never-ending spiral of planning. Would like to see more innovation.
