loved the job but all product went generic and the rest were not approved by FDA
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Austin,TX and Corpus Christi, TX – September 17, 2017
Made 10 to 14 call per day on set schedule. Sold or advanced the sell of product. Checked sample and left samples or coupons. Made appointments, schedule lunches, schedule dinner programs and attended 2 others monthly. Checked in on all staff. Management was competitive, enjoyed winning over other territories. The hardest part of the job was finding the selling point that would appeal to that doctor. The enjoyable part was winning the different contest.
FDA did not approve our products in time to stop the lay offs
Scientist (Current Employee) – Colbert, GA – September 7, 2017
The atmosphere at this site is not typical for all BI sites. The culture of this workplace is very tough to mold into and can be very difficult to deal with on some days. Management is lacking when it counts and overbearing when it doesn't.
Senior Principal Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Ridgefield, CT – September 6, 2017
No career advancement possibilities once you reach senior technical level. All technical work is being "off shored". Fancy term for outsourced. Current IT managers are all terrible and seem to be hand picked for political reasons.
Manufacturing Compliance Intern (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – August 29, 2017
I learned many things about how a bio pharmaceutical manufacturer works through my internship at BI. I was able to assist with important projects and gain the experience I need to gain a full time job.
Packer/Shipper (Former Employee) – St. Joseph, MO – July 29, 2017
Poor management Favortism on who's hired Lots of rework Only cared about production numbers/not quality of product to consumers Expired products relabled and used. The company overall was a very disappointing experience. Many co-workers, including myself put much OT into this place. This company is all about who you know. You can be a very dedicated worker and not have one chance of getting on FT unless you know individuals.
Dramatic atmosphere, Company not ran as anticipated, Poor attitudes of employees, Upper management very poor
Scientist I Compound Management (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – July 22, 2017
My colleagues were great to work with. We worked really well as a team, collaborating and combining our various skills to achieve great results on all projects. BI have great benefits and very competitive salaries. I was always able to learn new skills from my colleagues. I loved my work, even the every day stuff.
Wonderful culture, uncertain future and glass ceiling on advancement without PhD
Research Scientist (Current Employee) – Ames, IA – June 29, 2017
This company is undergoing a huge merger and easily sells jobs to other companies, you are not safe here. You are not important if you don't have a PhD. While a school plan is offered, it's all on your own time and the company can, and has, dropped people's projects before.
The social atmosphere here is great. People interact and there is an open office layout in a brand new, sparkling building (Ames site only).
Employee interactions encouraged
No mobility without phd, uncertain company structure due to merger
