    Pros

    Great Management. Definitely a pay for performance culture. If you perform well then you will be rewarded well.

    Cons

    Global mentality means people not willing to move around the world get forgotten. Too willing to lose people because they want to stay local.

    Advice to Management

    Your well thought out decision making processes are appreciated and should be continued. Don't let Monsanto's hire fire culture take over. Short sited companies get beaten in the end (i.e. Monsanto).

    I have been working at Bayer full-time

    Pros

    Overall site is slower pace and conservative practices. Depending on your role, generally people aren't overwork so can have a reasonal work/life balance.

    Cons

    Limited perks and advancement, like government, unless you are at the very top, then there's a lot of switching around. Salaries are not competitive for the area and there's resistance to change and innovation.
