      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time

      Pros

      salary, benefits, 401K, pension plan, frequent interactions and exposure to high level meetings, possibility to be involved in many inter-organization initiatives

      Cons

      Some great managers (Executive Directors and above) are counterbalanced by complete inept and political individuals. Overall lack of true innovation.

      Advice to Management

      Get some classes on how to handle people, respect them and foster their ideas, not your ego. You need to start with management 101.

      I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great benefits and great group of employees

      Cons

      Difficult to develop and get into other roles outside of the department. Management is very poor and after many meetings to help change things nothing has been implemented. I think management has outdated ideas and they need someone new with new ideas needs to be introduced to help morale and to boost employee retention.

      I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great culture. District managers in this company, for the most part, are their bedrock asset. The two that I had over the 4.3 years at BI were great and I learned alot from them. Their products were mostly great to sell. Their culture was mostly a family type atmosphere.

      Cons

      Restructure has hurt the family atmosphere somewhat, but no company is immune to this. On boarding was not as smooth as expected. Sales training seemed to take longer to get to certification than expected to get into the field.

      Advice to Management

      Streamline the on boarding process. Streamline the sales training process to get reps in the field sooner. You can't sell sitting at home. Forcast better to reduce restructure!
