    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and culture. A family owned business that focuses on the solutions for the long term.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy can drive you a little crazy. Has some work to do to be considered progressive and and attractive to millenials.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Promote diversity in hiring. Say no to initiatives.

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim

    Pros

    Boehringer Ingelheim offers great benefits including, generous vacation time, 401 match, flex hours, remote working, and a wonderful wellness program.

    Cons

    It is understood that changes take place and as the industry changes, layoffs occur, management and HR could offer more training and guidance so that some of these displaced employees can find employment in other divisions.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim

    Pros

    Great Benefits, generous PTO, great pay and bonus, pension plan

    Cons

    bloated management, too many initiatives and changes occurring at the same time. last minute lay offs

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to listen to their direct reports a lot more as they are the ones actually doing the jobs and have a clear understanding of operations. Not enough room to grow or develop

  7. "Pay and benefits are great"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits including 401k match and pension. Great work life balance where if you're efficient, you can leave on time. There are days where you need to put in extra hours but that's more irregular than regular. Good location right off the highway. Many happy professional people, although that has been decreasing lately.

    Cons

    We are slowly losing many benefits and sales have been down due to increased competition. The company has shown recently, that employees are less important than they used to be.

    Need more people in management with working experience of the company.
