    Incompetent management is great for unstable excipients, but a curse for productive work-horses "active ingredients".

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Comparable benefits and flex-commute policy for some departments. Overall compensation is at par with other mid-large US pharma companies if you are experienced with 5 plus years. Some international exposure is a plus. Eg. Company match of 401K is zero until 3 yrs completed on the job.

    Cons

    Frequent top level and organizational changes-no accountability to measure the success or failure. Incompetent Managers hand-picked by like-minded VPs, and their chaotic micro-management, Some very smart worker-bees' ideas are disrespectfully crushed. Who is really living the values of the company? Micromanagement has brought productivity to a halt in certain depts. Doers have no power to decide, and are then punished for failure to deliver results. Managers constantly nag them to do otherwise non-productive chores. At the end, Mgrs. look tough and it helps them CTA, and get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the Board. Family-owned business is been eaten away due to serious German vs. Austrian vs. American power and political conflicts. Good medicine for sustainability of profits in not the primary focus of a few key pillars of this company. Learn from a few VPs who have done a real good job-(don't let them get pushed aside in these changes), and have not just shuffled deck of cards for window-dressing. Dig deeper into the causes of recent failures what caused them to begin with. Change at the top C or VP levels, without fundamental work-ethics and culture shift will not bring success. Further delays will result in more site closures and further loss of market-share. I wrote this because I care, but I can't be heard from within.
