    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Bayer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good products, good way of medical conduct, some fair senior managers.

    Cons

    In Turkish pharma division, HR department only does what is in the best interest of their close friend senior managers. HR department is gossipping a lot about employees. Do not expect a fair treatment and be aware that HR is non-existent at best, and toxic at worst, in this organisation. No fair treatment, job positions filled according to personal preferences with no fair performance evaluation. Fake interviews designed to fool people to think that there is a fair evaluation.
