Pros

Benefits are great (full tuition reimbursement, 100% 401k match up to 5%, pension, annual bonus, 4 weeks vacation), well staffed, flexible work hours

Cons

Salary could be better, boring work, career advancement means chasing promotions for years while your job function stays the same.

Advice to Management

The company is run as good as you can expect from a big pharma company. Management here is better than anywhere else I have worked. Keep up the good work.

    "Boehringer Ingelheim a Quality Place of Work"

    Pros

    The benefits are outstanding,
    Boehringer makes it a priority not to hire too many employees to prevent layoffs. As a result, layoffs are extremely rare for salary employees.
    Boehringer pumps 10% of the profits back into R&D which makes my job so much easier and more exciting.

    Cons

    As Boehringer grows, so grows the political environment.
    Management is not well organized, but this can be said for most companies.
    Because it is such a good place to work, people do not leave. This can make career development and moving up the ladder very difficult. When a new process is introduced, Boehringer tends to hire someone new rather than develop an existing employee into the new process, slowing any chance of career development/improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees. Listen to employees. Reduce pompous attitude toward employees.
    Contrary to popular belief, a PhD is not necessary for the job responsibilities in 95% of the positions posted. Different is not a synonym of worse.
