    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits including healthcare and 401k. Lots of diversity. Employee development and cross-training opportunities.

    Cons

    Communication from management and between departments was poor. Promotions aren't offered frequently enough.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depends on the department you work in but people are nice.
    Chance of advancement in certain departments.

    Cons

    Contract employees get nothing but a check and 5 days paid vacation a year.
    No real training at all.
    Some supervisors are very rude and talk down to you and have no people skills whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to save a few dollars and outsourcing things and people. All your doing is completely slowing and stopping the service level of getting help.the ones that are contracted that have been there a while deserve more than what they get.

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

    Pros

    Full support from management and incredible compensation. Plenty of opportunities for growth and management promotes and nurtures the growth within the organization.

    Cons

    Employees sometimes work long hours. This is definitely not an 8-5 type of career. Company culture expects people to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify redundant processes.

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

    Pros

    I am contracted through a company & I work @ Boehringer & Ingelheim, but do not technically work for Boehringer & Ingelheim
    This job has pretty good benefits & I have found that most of the people are very nice there.

    Cons

    Some of the standards & requirements are hard to reach sometimes
    I feel very frustrated trying to complete all of my work

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for area. Flexible work/family consideration. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Cubicle work isn't especially engaging. They make a point to remind temp workers that they are not included in certain company activities, which would be fine except for the tone in which it is expressed and the constant 'X activity is for BI employees only. You are not to participate as a contract employee.' being repeated every time which is a bit degrading. Lots of constant restructuring leads to position uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Make a statement and stick to it, don't patronize by sidestepping with vague platitudes.

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great overall place to work. I can only speak as 'staff' but the pay and benefits are the best in the area (including much of KC).

    Despite being a high volume and high quality facility, it has a relaxed atmosphere.

    The managers are great for the most part. Of course the higher you go the worse it gets, as is usually the case, but most of the managers define the high quality yet casual atmosphere I mentioned above.

    Cons

    Location.

    Some management but no worse than most employers.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management, keep it up! High pressure schedule meets zero defect products, you know what to do.

    Upper management/executives, listen to middle management more often.
