    Accountability, teamwork, great goals primarily improving the quality of healthcare. Award winning performance - Malcom Baldrige Quality Award "twice"

    Profitability versus number one goal, improving the quality of healthcare, and number three goal providing for an enjoyable and rewarding workplace for many more before Reduction in Force - GO Steelers!

    I worked at MEDRAD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I really can't think of any.

    Cons

    It is a shell of its former self. Mostly just life cycle engineering.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to face the truth and stop all the politics between groups.

    Reduce the chaos.

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

    Pros

    Medrad Pros - Pay and benefits were good, although the "friends" got better pay. Great employees back in the day when there were just those buildings in Indianola and RIDC.
    Bayer Pros - can't think of any.

    Cons

    Medrad Cons - Very cliquish and discriminatory. Crafty, sneaky and devious managers and employees who would destroy employees they did not like. Warrendale location was the beginning of the end for MEDRAD. The culture changed with lots of arrogance that management failed to see. The management after this time went down hill.
    Bayer Cons - You left lots of good people go and kept some real bad ones. But you don't care about these reviews anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Management no longer cares what people think. Bayer preaches all kind of values, but are easily deceived by employees. There is no team in Bayer, no respect for cultural, race, gender or sexual orientation differences - there is extreme discrimination practiced by managers unless it's somebody on the 'like' list. When everything is eventually reabsorbed by Germany, US employees will not need to be concerned about advice to the management.

    Pros

    We competed with our products and service, we won as a result of our people. We valued our customers and employees.

    Cons

    MEDRAD is no longer as it was acquired by Bayer Healthcare. The values and culture has shifted which one would expect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eye on your customers and employees

    I have been working at MEDRAD full-time

    Pros

    Knowledgeable teams, good compensation, low cost of living in Pittsburgh PA. Before Bayer there was a great work environment and camaraderie among employees, and great communication from upper management regarding business direction.

    Cons

    Bayer. Pharma company attempting to run a medical device company (which was already trying to reinvent itself as a software company.) Work environment rapidly deteriorating amidst frequent reorganizations and rounds of layoffs. It is pretty clear that you are just a cog in the wheel now.

    Advice to Management

    Carve out some budget dollars for team building.
