    I have been working at Bayer full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -The employees are friendly & extremely helpful
    -This program is a great way to ease into an IT Career.
    -It gives the new hire a little taste of a few different components of the IT work environment

    Cons

    -The program could use a more structured onboarding process

    Advice to Management

    Continue this program. It is a great opportunity for those just graduating college. It is a benefit to the graduate, as it gives them the opportunity to work for a global corporation and gain experience right out of college. It also benefits Bayer, giving them fresh minds to incorporate into their business.
