I have been working at Bayer HealthCare

Pros

Can be very consistent. Some of the people are very nice, genuine, and outgoing.

Cons

Big company. Very old. Inefficient use of resources. Only one product for the entire site. No future prospects for the company in terms of manufacturing new products. Cost cutting is the only goal of management, not innovation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more technically minded, hire more people who understand the science, not just bureaucrats.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is favorable at the Seattle area site. Bayer's 401k contribution is one of the best I've seen - on par with Amgens. Bayer supports alternate transportation (free bus passes and shower/locker room for cyclist) and remote access from a home office.

    Bayer seems to be weathering the economic down turn better than most -- at least so far.

    Cons

    The health insurance is some of the most expensive I've seen anywhere. They aknowledge it and blame it on an older than average workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more resources to employees of acquired companies. They often get overlooked and feel like stepchildren.

    Pros

    Bayer has an understanding human resource department and upper management. There is a good amount of leeway for who have to deal with personal issues such as school, family, health etc.

    Cons

    Over management by lower management, there are quite a few micro managers and they are not fun to work with. Bayer need to teach their managers how to be competent managers. This problem started with the acquirement of a smaller company which led to talent exodus. people in lower positions were moved up but some of them are not fully trained to be managers or have not had enough management experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees more.
