Fun work environment and office culture within manufacturing dept.
Manufacturing Associate (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – November 19, 2017
The manufacturing department is a fun place to work. Lots to do, and can be stressful at times, but thats the life of manufacturing. Bosses are supportive and co-workers are generally helpful. It's important to maintain this type of culture in a team environment.
Wonderful Company to get your feet wet in the Pharma Industry
Therapeutic Business Specialist Diabetes (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – November 7, 2017
I came to BI as a brand new rep in the industry. During my first 18 months I knew that Pharmaceutical sales were a perfect fit for my competitive nature. I was able to exceeds my goals and expected bonus as well as Finish in the top 8% of the company in sales the first two years.
Flexibility with early morning breakfasts and evening dinner programs.
Not enough time to see if new processes are effective.
Very Productive Place with Ping Pong Table and Games People Never Used
Quality (Former Employee) – Danbury, CT – November 2, 2017
BI was a family centered workplace but it shifted values to attract Millennials and win awards over substance. They focus on making more health and if they make the right decisions will have products to remain a private company moving forward.
The hardset part of the job is providing details and results foe the fragmented matrix management.
Remote working was allowed
moving towards outsourced models for everything including core R&D
Scientist II, Bioprocess Engineering Upstream (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – October 24, 2017
very nice building for employees to work at, but there is no cafeteria to provide hot meal for lunch. People are very nice to work with and great people culture at BI. Unfortunately BI hires too many contractors, each individual can only work at BI for 2 years max., and 98% of contractors can't be converted to full time.
Administrative Assistant Global Sourcing R&D+M (Former Employee) – Ridgefield, CT – October 23, 2017
I enjoyed working at Boehringer Ingelheim. The hardest part of the job was coming into the position midstream but it worked out well. It was a true team environment and I look forward to working there again.
Privately held company, with strong animal health portfolio
Associate Director (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – October 12, 2017
Products are excellent in all species. Technology is lacking and support staff is limited/overwhelmed. Great benefits and job security. Animal Health is a much better organization to work for compared to the Pharmaceutical side.
Growing fast and small company feel is no longer there
Bioanalytical Technologist (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – October 2, 2017
I was hired out of college and promised that there were immediate advancement opportunities as training modules were completed. This was promised verbally by HR and patently false. I could not live on the salary provided while paying student loans and did not receive any raises at all over the course of two years. With a college degree I made $23,100/year.
Great benefits if you don;t mind no work-life balance and poor management
Product Manager (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – September 24, 2017
There can be many benefits working for BI as far as the great employees,heath insurance,401K, time off and travel. However the management is poor and overwork their employees. I've taken many recent marketing classes and I would say this company is behind on delivering their customers needs in an innovative way. I would recommend working here if you don't mind always working, however you you want a life outside of this company, I highly recommend you keep searching.
401K, health insurance including vision and dental paid time off and travel
DIRECTOR of MARKETING RESEARCH (Former Employee) – Ridgefield, CT – September 23, 2017
professional work atmosphere, with great opportunities to grow and learn from diverse people and situations. Management influenced by German HQ, which affected USA operations. Workplace culture was goal focused, achievement, company successes. The hardest part of the job was getting through the "red tape" in such a large Corporation. The most enjoyable part was being able to be yourself, create your own style of work and to be entrepreneurial.
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.
