Pros

Good on work life balance.Ethical. Good Benefits.

Poor carrier counseling. Very difficult to raise the carrier ladder. Using outdated technologies. Respect only for the length of service.

Advice to Management

I would say to integrate BBS employees into various Bayer businesses and treat them on par with other bayer employees

    "Great company to work for - if you work for them and not aren't a "temporary worker" who works there for years on end..."

    Pros

    A company with a storied history both positive and negative, that treats it's permanent employees like valuable rare minerals. They're hardly ever terminated, always being transferred to another department if theirs is closed down etc. Promotions for permanent employees are a matter of course, due to those who simply do their job adequately for a period of time or those who are friends with someone higher up in the chain of command.

    Cons

    The "cons" are if you're one of the second class at BBTS, the contractors (pun intended). Also known as permatemps, many of them endure working the same tasks as permanent employees without benefits, no paid holidays, no sick days, no time and a half on holidays, no vacation, no wage increases, and no hope of advancement. Plus, you get to watch as the actual full time employees around you get the day off paid, making more than you do working that same day. That is of course until they come back on the next regular business day, only to look the other way some more when you walk by in the hall rushing for the scraps of the executives' catered food left on the kitchen counters. Sound like a place you'd like to work? My advice - run, and run fast!

    Advice to Management

    The entire upper management system needs cleaned up through and through. People doing the actual work make barely a double digit percentage of the company's (service-only) revenues, leaving the rest to pay for the effectively useless, massive upper management crew. There is a "director" for every little thing you can imagine, whose main task during the day is to sit in meeting after meeting accomplishing nothing of any importance.
