Good job

Coworkers are a little untrustworthy and look for anything to report you on. So I would just say mind your P’s and Q’s. Get in there do your job and that’s it.

Busy and great coworkers

Started out as a temp and worked my way up to full time. I had to figure out a lot on my own just because i learn by doing and asking why i need to do it. I really enjoyed the people and would work for company again.

Bayer Seed Technician

As a seed tech at Bayer crop science, it is a good job. They pay well. Though the hours can be long and day and night rotation sucks too. Leadership is alright but they lack communication.

Great People

Awesome work-life balance. Management cares about its people and gives out company parties during holidays. People are approachable and very supportive of each other.

No room for improvement

The contractor system is set up to prevent most people from even having access to apply for full-time positions. Empty promises seem to be the most consistent thing about this company.

Constant changing environment

Leadership goes through turnover every 18-24 months, creating instability in departments and questions about job stability. Compensation packages are very good.

Management Issues

Conservative company, major issues with management. They do not listen to the people on the ground and therefore cause a toxic environment. There are some good people found that they do not act quick enough to correct problems.

Great place to work

Great people with consumer health. The onboarding needs work and the benefit offerings should be more visible. It takes too long to location the benefits within the system.

Not horrible, but definitely treated like the bottom of the totem pole

As a contractor you are just under payed and under valued. There is no true way to move up the ladder as a contractor at all. Job can also get very repetitive. That may be either a good or bad thing for people.

Old, slow, conservative and ineffective

QA is very conservative. Time wasting on non-value add activities. Extremely slow to implement anything. Projects that normally take 1 year elsewhere take 3-4 years. Management mostly shuffles ppt and talks the big talk. Huge problem with roles and responsibilities across the groups. Old timers and lifers haven't worked in other companies so they have no frame of reference on how world moves outside of bayer.Salary is good, Management doesn't hide info and is relatively open for questions. Good company just needs to learn how to move faster, as competition will bypass it.

Great place to work

Great place to work and benefits. Interview process a bit cumbersome. Lots of CBT you are required to do the first couple of weeks you are there. Takes away from getting up to speed on your job.
