TD coordinator

Epic fail when it comes to training, High turnover rate. Lack of promotion and favoritism. Overall management was horrible and the pay was lower than average for my history and background experience.

A Big European Company

Everyone should remember that Bayer is a German company that is still working to digest their Monsanto acquisition in the US. Since Crop Science is now 50% of total revenue, Pharma and Consumer Health divisions are less of a corporate focus. Work / life balance is good, but this may not be a place to grow a career longer-term.

Good team work, excellent management team, opportunity to learn new skills,

Excellent place to work. The focus on safety with frequent training on safety issues was impressive. However, poor consideration regarding personal needs e.g. vacation for temporary workers is the shortfall that needs to be addressed.

Pros

Free suppers when working after hours, training opportunities on aspects related to safety, good transportation to work location.

Cons

No incentives for temporary workers, limited access to computers for training

Great people, Lax environment

Really relaxed environment, as long as you get the job you have to do done, no one cares how long you are there. Everything takes forever to happen though. Getting a new computer, etc.

PROS: Hybrid/WFH flexibility, Benefits/Insurance. Coworkers. CONS: Work/Life Balance (depending on dept.), Top-Level Management

PROS: Depending on the depart you worked in and your position, most employees in my department had the ability to Work from Home a few days a week or when needed. During Covid time, all office workers were required to work from home full-time. The Benefits and Insurance were good. Vacation/PTO was good (if you could take them without having to work during your Vacation time off). Good coworkers and team camaraderie (depending on the department you worked in). CONS: Work/Life Balance, Top-Level Management

sicuramente un ambiente lavorativo molto stimolante ma molto esigente

la parte piu' difficile del lavoro e' stata nello svolgere alcune mansioni con personale poco preparatoIl lavoro in se molto gratificante anche se livelli di stress molto alti

awesome place to work, with great colleagues and key, insightful learnings

seeing to customer needs and following up to meet clients satisfaction. Learnt that the staff are as important as the customer, both parties need to happy for growth to be achieved. Great man management skills and a great work place culture of creating a clean and safe environment where people work, live and play. Following up on distributor order and seeing my yearly forecast/target pull through is the hardest trying to convince the distributor to do more and the most enjoyable if it is achieved.

Okay Company Needs Improvement

Although managers and some coworkers were friendly and supportive, the company culture is dreadful. Compared to other corporate spaces I’ve worked in, Bayer was definitely at the bottom in terms of employee incentives, community outreach, training programs/workshops, and overall culture. Pay was okay if you negotiated upon getting hired. Growth is very limited unless you want to play favorites. I guess it’s an okay company to kick-off your career, I’m glad to be moving on.

Good team environment

Worked here as a contractor. Overall was a decent place to work, some months were slower than others. I enjoyed the company events and autonomy in my position.

Fun and competitive

You can also describe a motivating company culture by calling it “exciting,” “activating,” or “driven.” Engaging: Suggests that employees will feel invested in their work because it speaks to their interests. You can also say the culture is “enriching,” “stimulating,” or “energizing.

A great team but the wider organisation and senior management driving their own agenda

I like my role and my immediate teamAnd function but I really do question the wider senior management team who are creating a non Bayer culture which goes against the values of core Bayer. There is limited career progression and it’s more about who you know and not what you know!

Pros

Lunch card, good benefits

Cons

Lack of career progression and senior management

Very fast paced. Not for the slow and pokey hard to keep the pace. You got hot and sweaty very fast. Good benefits all right pay. Cry long hours

job culture

good work environment and nice place to work. They provide enough time to get use to the environment and work. Atleast in the team I worked for. They send me for training to gain additional skills.

Amazing company to learn and grow

I was a year long intern at Bayer, and I learned more with and from the team than my school syllabus. People are really nice and want you to succeed. One thing I loved was team focuses more upon individual's strength over weakness as well as motivate to develop additional skillsets.

Pros

Company culture, values, Wlb, compensation

Cons

lesser opportunities for new graduates
