Pros

Great pay, great team to work for. Had a lot of good projects for the summer. Put a lot on my resume. Team was extremely knowledgeable. Boss was great (understanding, competent, intelligent, and just a nice guy). Still keep in contact today. Other parts of the company were good as well (IT support, HR). Very friendly atmosphere and receptive to your needs.

Cons

No casual friday. Other than that, very satisfied.

Advice to Management

Put in a casual friday.

    Pros

    Immediate co-workers were great - willing to work as team, collegial. Acceptable work/life balance. On-site cafeteria and Bayer product store bonuses.

    Cons

    Senior management thinks highly of itself. Not willing to listen to your input if not on the same level. Once you have your position, it appears advancement is more political than merit based.

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas - especially to those less senior workers and American workers. Not all great ideas originate in Germany.

    State of the art pharmaceutical manufacturing with excessive management and FDA red tape.

    Pros

    State of the art pharmaceutical manufacturing. Good location near the freeway 80. Certain groups and certain jobs could be good for certain career paths. Clean and new campus (most buildings). Walking distance from 4th st and other good spots for shops and restaurants, pubs etc. Cafe is decent. Not great, but convenient. The distributed campus makes for a good location for doing other job searches via cell phone etc. Some of the introduction training and ongoing training has really good, content, instructors, framework and good variety. Money is no object in obtaining the quality of product production necessary for FDA approval.

    Cons

    Most workers are treated like cogs in a machine run from Germany. Most local Sr. mngt is from Germany too. Though an industry wide problem, excessive paper work and red tape as mandated by the FDA make it very hard to make substantial change of even progress of any kind at times.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better means for gathering feedback from employees. Provide more insight into future plans for business in the US.
