I worked at Bayer full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits and company culture. Firm truly strives to improve the life of patients and adequately invests in and successfully motivates their employees

Cons

The new "chicken coop" work set up which which allows for absolutely no privacy, efficient or effective work environment regardless of the daylight each employee gets to enjoy.

Advice to Management

Convert your own huge office into an open work space and after one week you'll realize that the noise around you prevents you from thinking.

    I have been working at Bayer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic medical benefits, specially for medicines.

    Cons

    - If you are not German, or a Woman then there is pretty much no future in the company, unless you are a big brown-noser.
    - Limited advancement or recognition for a job well done.
    - Communication from upper management is very poor, they never give clear directions on what employees should be doing.
    - Upper management concentrates too much on "activity metrics" and "growth expectations" over "team morale" which creates a hostile work environment.
    - Upper management does not listen as much as they do not communicate, often they go around telling you impossible is possible.
    - Big brown-nosers like the Director, Compliance, Audit and Risk Management HealthCare among others is there only to update PowerPoint presentations and do not real work.
    - If you are perceived to be a good employee you will usually they will block your access to training, or exclude you from meetings or communications that are relevant to your job, or will start setting impossible deadlines, in other words, setting you up to fail.
    - Performance reviews are pretty much useless, as there is a “quota” you have to fill in as below expectations, so reviews end up being very subjective and sometimes they will accuse you of things the reviewer does, but unfortunately you are on the other side.

    Advice to Management

    - Please make up your mind, employees are always expecting the worst just because you decided now to make changes to the organization.
