    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The level of expertise and teamwork exhibited by all of the personnel help create an above average environment for budding and long-term careers. Benefits and compensation certainly reflect this appreciation for BI employees. Modern workspaces are excellent and the work/life balance is enhanced by many employees remote-working.

    Cons

    Still less than average comparative to industry companies, sometimes challenging to work with existing systems as it is difficult to keep up with changing network/software environments.

    Pros

    it's a family oriented company

    Cons

    it all depends who your boss will be.if the boss is not understanding of situations,then that's the downside of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management should keep up the skills training of employees to enable to succeed in the ever changing corporate world.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Working safety, value through innovation, good working environment, good people, always one step ahead in the pharmaceutical industry, historical company, large product portfolio, the company belongs to a family meaning you won't have to be afraid of stock market games with the company jeopardizing your job.

    Cons

    I think that the salaries and generally the various compensations are not the best in the pharmaceutical industry. In the past 5 years there was a feeling that not every manager deserved his position and this led to disappointment. Also the balance between working time and free time for the employee is not always achieved because some things are required the last minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greater and constant use of talent management, initiate better motives for excellent workers. Keep focusing on growing the products portfolio in therapeutic areas of great interest. Try to make marketing and sales work together as allies.
