A comfortable place to work, but if you want to move ahead, move on

I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals

Pros

Great Benefits, Good people, but more turnover lately. People here seem to really care about what they are working on.

Cons

Too many hired on resumes, but not managerial skills. Promotion is who you know. Pipeline is not as exciting as it once was.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of the way or outsource.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, decent benefits (although Medical is slipping), fair amount of PTO.
    Excellent rank and file employees.

    Cons

    Senior management can be very inflexible.
    Too much time wasted on constantly changing policies.
    "Diversity" for all but white males.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work Keys program is going to deprive you of good, seasoned veteran employees.
    Diversity program is a politically correct joke.

    Long standing conservative company promoting good products but not with good ethics or good managers

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals full-time

    Pros

    Solid training program with continual support and development....very, very rigorous! Some (not all) really good products which are backed by longevity and physician familiarity/trust.

    Cons

    High accountability expected of reps (good), absolute lack of accountability expected of managers/senior staff (bad) who get away with everything from sexual harrassment to bullying and no one bats an eyelid, including HR.

    Very conservative approach to benefits and compensation (one of the lowest in the industry) unbalanced by very high expectation on delivery and performance compared to other companies.

    Slow to promote.

    Not much transparency internally with outsiders knowing what's going on often before employees (which is embarrassing) and an often sneaky way of sharing bits of information rather than the full picture leading to negative employee morale.

    Considering how much is spent on training, there are huge yearly employee attrition rates. Considering the above factors, it is not a mystery why they can't keep employees. Bad business sense. However, don't expect it is the same all over the world - especially in countries where higher accountability is the norm.
