I have been working at Bayer full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Don't typically push anyone out. If you want, you can spend you entire career here.
The new CEO seems energetic, with good ideas, and a long term vision.

Cons

To call them austere would minimize it. Extremely bottom line focused, at the expense of long-term growth.
Passive aggressive culture. People are very nice superficially, but don't reveal their true motives.
Very bureaucratic and slow decision making.
It's not what you do or accomplish, it is who advocates for you. It's about who management is comfortable with, not who is most qualified.

Advice to Management

Make promotions based on merit, not who is liked more or more well connected.
Set up on boarding for all new employees, both internal and external hires.
Focus more on the long term, not the short term.
Provide more transparent career and succession planning.
Promote strategists and people who have accomplished, not "potential".
Spend for the long term instead of bleeding assets for every penny of profit.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Bayer as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Professional work environment, high standards of business and engineering ethics, knowledgeable and friendly employees. Open atmosphere and there seemed to be good room for advancement. For a college student this position was a great opportunity to work in a professional environment.

    Cons

    Pharmaceuticals in general is somewhat of a niche area for work from an engineer's point of view. Supporting manufacturing can potentially lead to stressful work maintaining uninterrupted operations.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management seemed competent and respectful. As an intern I had no real complaints or issues with any level of management.
