    I have been working at Bayer full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great 401k and benefits. Competitive salary. Management has been sincerely interested in employee development and will invest in you if you are willing to take initiative. Innovation focused company. Will let you run with a good idea if you feel like champion-ing it.

    I have strong positive impression of upper management in It in Pittsburgh area and in my direct supervision

    Cons

    German company so sometimes I have conference calls around 6 or 7:00 AM.

    Some opportunities for advancement might require relocation.

    I am still not sure about the Monsanto acquisition

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bayer.

    Interview

    Phone pre-screening. Basic questions tell me about yourself. Why bayer. talk about previous work experience. Phone interview. Spoke with few people in HR department. Lots of situational questions. Everyone was super nice. I worked with a few different employees to schedule the interviews, which got confusing but overall everyone was helpful.
