    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time

    Pros

    Boehringer is a German company and will always be. It's not a GLOBAL company! If you want a career path and diversity, do not work here. The only pros is it's the only big company in the area, which can also be a down side once you relocated to here because there's no other opportunities.

    Cons

    Senior management are clueless and very disintegrated from the middle and the bottom. No work life balance and it's only going to get worse because of massive layoffs. This is definitely not a place to work for right now because all issues within senior management team, and human capitals are not what they value.

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employees are Great. Intelligent, motivated and most are pleasant.The drug pipeline seems to be very good for the coming 5 years.

    Cons

    Many managers are now cut and dry corporate. Also the pay should be higher and for the last few years salary increases have been in the 2% range even for top producers., a joke. Upper management seems completely detached from the real world and seem to be repeating mistakes that other pharma companies made 5 years ago. I would recommend this job to a friend but to a relative iffy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that a happy employee works more efficiently if they are happily motivated than by the stick.
    training sessions are made unnecessarily complicated. Test on relevant data not obscure facts that will never be brought up in a sales presentation.
