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

    Pros

    Good pay and Benefits with some opportunity to advance

    Cons

    Management does not listen to Scientists about direction of research. Spins data to impress Investors for a few years on a project then drops it. Most decisions are made based on company share price not on the actual science

    Advice to Management

    Listen to bench level scientists when they are in the lab they have better idea about what is working and what is not. When the science doesn't support the claims it disenfranchises workers and leads to shoddy work practices.
