    I worked at Bayer HealthCare full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I had a great boss who had prior experience as a coach for executives--making my experience one of the mentor relationship that I have longed for. I also had a close peer, one level up, who coached me and cared about how my behavior reflected on the department, myself, himself, and our boss. Again, a great mentoring experience for a new grad!

    Cons

    Bayer is a pharmecutical company, and I was working for a medical device division--and the net effect was a seeming disconnect between the larger company and how medical device companies typically handle their processes. Some of the consolidation projects actually hurt the overall performance of the company; but because the company believed that centralizing everything was the best way, they didn't seem to see the effects that centralization had on performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider pros AND cons before centralizing/decentralizing operations--it may have unintended consequences far outweighing what was initially considered. Ask questions after reading reports--the reports may have already answered the question.

    I worked at Bayer HealthCare

    Pros

    The pay was great and the benefits were excellent. The employees treated everybody like a one big family with respect.

    Cons

    Nothing I could think of. This was the best job I ever had. Too bad the production was moved to Germany and we all had to be laid off.
