Featured Review

Current Employee - Associate Director

I have been working at Bayer full-time for less than a year

Pros

Been here for one year Supportive management Dynamic and can-do attitude from top down Management is open to suggestions and new ideas from all levels Opportunity for upward mobility if you want... it

Cons

Every big company tends to move slow and get weighed down with levels of approval to move things forward but it is all relative

Advice to Management

Keep focusing on culture and a can-do attitude Allow the US team some autonomy - everything is still under complete control of corporate

Former Intern - Emulsions

I worked at Wacker Chemie for less than a year

Pros

I was hired as a chemist intern with a very specific goal that broadened exponentially the more I got into my research. I was mostly left to myself but I never felt alone, I always had resources at... my disposal; whether it be contacts within the company, chemicals supplied, technology or instruments I needed. I felt like what I was doing was being taken seriously by the higher ups and was always included in project groups. I was given my own office space in a shared trailer as well.

Cons

The long hours and repetitive testing seemed very monotonous, albeit important to a production facility.

Advice to Management

The only thing that I really needed was better training with the company intranet, although that would have most likely been included with actual employment and not just an internship.
