    Pay and benefits are great

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits including 401k match and pension. Great work life balance where if you're efficient, you can leave on time. There are days where you need to put in extra hours but that's more irregular than regular. Good location right off the highway. Many happy professional people, although that has been decreasing lately.

    Cons

    We are slowly losing many benefits and sales have been down due to increased competition. The company has shown recently, that employees are less important than they used to be.

  3.  

    Great career opportunities with plenty of benefits.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for growth, pay is pretty good (due to the cons)

    Cons

    Incredibly busy, schedule changes without notice, change mentality more focused on short-term rather than long-term goals, internal politics between managers and senior managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop squabbling with each other, it's affecting the staff below you and beneath those you are squabbling with

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the last 9 years, the company has been some serious changes but one thing that I have admired is that they regard on employees satisfaction. There have been changes with their time-off policies. perks and benefits but one thing for sure is the company prioritize employees work-life balance.

    Cons

    Internal processes in promotion has too much bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders should consider looking into their people's talent and what they can offer in the job and not to focus on people that other managers favor.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, great colleagues, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Research success has been limited. Current strategy has eliminated almost all innovation. It's hurting the product and they are loosing some valuable skilled talent. Different treatment for some special employees is also a hinderance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at where your problems are.
