    Pros

    Excellent health benefits, great office workspace and employee perks.
    Met many awesome people - great teamwork and leadership overall.
    Loyal employees, hard-working and honest people.

    Cons

    Many employees had difficulty 'getting on board' with constant change and increasing demands as the company went from MEDRAD, Inc. to Bayer Healthcare. Double-digit growth expectations amidst major corporate restructuring and regular changes in business operations. Lots of pressure to conform and perform (corporation ideals), moving away from the previous mindset (company is family, as it was at MEDRAD). Sad to see the changes in the company affect long-term (formerly very happy) employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hold onto the 'family values' that were once MEDRAD, even though the company is now completely Bayer Healthcare.

    Pros

    Don't typically push anyone out. If you want, you can spend you entire career here.
    The new CEO seems energetic, with good ideas, and a long term vision.

    Cons

    To call them austere would minimize it. Extremely bottom line focused, at the expense of long-term growth.
    Passive aggressive culture. People are very nice superficially, but don't reveal their true motives.
    Very bureaucratic and slow decision making.
    It's not what you do or accomplish, it is who advocates for you. It's about who management is comfortable with, not who is most qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make promotions based on merit, not who is liked more or more well connected.
    Set up on boarding for all new employees, both internal and external hires.
    Focus more on the long term, not the short term.
    Provide more transparent career and succession planning.
    Promote strategists and people who have accomplished, not "potential".
    Spend for the long term instead of bleeding assets for every penny of profit.
