No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Bayer full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Average Pay and benefits, good coworkers. Decent training department to get the experience needed to go to work for a better petrochemical company.

Cons

Be ready to be belittled everyday you come to work. Engineers are managing the area with no management experience or true idea of what shift worker go through. Ideas or alternate ideas or not considered from a technician level. We have 5 engineers for every technician, but they continue to cut technicians and hire more engineers. No retirement, insurance gets more costly every year, bonuses are a fraction of the competition.

Advice to Management

Need to realize that the technicians/operators pay the bills.

    Pros

    Fantastic medical benefits, specially for medicines.

    Cons

    - If you are not German, or a Woman then there is pretty much no future in the company, unless you are a big brown-noser. - Limited advancement or recognition for a job well done. - Communication from upper management is very poor, they never give clear directions on what employees should be doing. - Upper management concentrates too much on "activity metrics" and "growth expectations" over "team morale" which creates a hostile work environment. - Upper management does not listen as much as they do not communicate, often they go around telling you impossible is possible. - Big brown-nosers like the Director, Compliance, Audit and Risk Management HealthCare among others is there only to update PowerPoint presentations and do not real work. - If you are perceived to be a good employee you will usually they will block your access to training, or exclude you from meetings or communications that are relevant to your job, or will start setting impossible deadlines, in other words, setting you up to fail. - Performance reviews are pretty much useless, as there is a “quota” you have to fill in as below expectations, so reviews end up being very subjective and sometimes they will accuse you of things the reviewer does, but unfortunately you are on the other side.

    Advice to Management

    - Please make up your mind, employees are always expecting the worst just because you decided now to make changes to the organization.

    I worked at Bayer as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and nice people who care about employee moral

    Cons

    Really hard to get hired. I was a temp employee. I had hear stories of people who were temps there for years and finally got hired.
