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

    Pros

    Good benefits. There really is nothing else to say here, I am padding this out to the 20 word minimum.

    Cons

    Bayer Healthcare is a massive corporation, you are just another number to them. Everyone in management seems to be of the belief that if you don't completely agree with every decision being made, you can leave and they will just replace with you.

    The idea that they want us to have a better work life balance is a farce. In reality, they will try to keep you around 40 hours a week because thats "best for your work/life balance", and then pick and nag when you're unable to complete the job.

    Very few career opportunities for field employees, unless you are willing to relocate to Pittsburgh.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend upper management take a hard look at what middle management is doing to the ground level employees. There are many difficulties facing the organization, but because middle management doesn't want to or know how to deal with it, they pass it down to the ground level employees, placing undue stress and hardship.
