    I have been working at Bayer full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A company that acts with integrity with its people and customers. Believes in people development in a current roles as well as development for future opportunities.

    Cons

    Over burdened with processes making innovation and flexibility a company goal but a current impossibility. Hierarchy and traditional politics cause a lack of ability to move quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Use service groups to find solutions and push for faster decision making as well as decrease the number of stakeholders in those decisions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview

    During Merck/Bayer merger our interview process was ok. It was lengthy but only because they were trying to learn what they were taking on. We all became Bayer employees but had to go through the formal interviewing process.
