    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bayer for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Full time position is a positive

    Cons

    Unprofessional HR department, middle level managers loose lips and very unapproachable. Company culture is very cliché, poor morale and fear based managing

    Advice to Management

    Create open transparent HR department, manage your managers as they create enormous issues in the field force that go without any intervention

    I worked at Bayer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary and training. Great products

    Cons

    A lot of fires to put out: 1. class action lawsuits re: safety 2. tv.commercial/ad had to be pulled for "false advertising" 3. discrimination lawsuits against internal executive team 4. blockbuster drug went generic a year early. Leadership had no idea. We found out on the streets... 5. 65% increase in price on medical device-providers were very upset and it took a year for most insurances to meet and approve the price increase for reimbursement. All these negative things cause 5 rounds of layoffs over a 3 year period.

    "Bayer review"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Professional Pharmaceutical Sales Representative, Specialty in New York, NY

    I have been working at Bayer full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Bayer is a well established company with a recognizable name. Benefits are relatively good and compensation is competitive with rest of industry.

    Cons

    Company is burdened by corporate integrity agreements with the government. Everything must be filtered through Legal.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible and open to input from sales people.

    I have been working at Bayer full-time

    Pros

    Amazing products, and for the most part, your manager and co-workers are pretty good to deal with. Your clients that are loyal and like the company, will support your as much as they possibly can. Company is "well organized" like a bureaucracy, but communication is terrible.

    Cons

    You will work for your money. Prepared to be in front of your computer in the early AM, spend a day in the field, and be back in front of your computer until very late PM. "Clinic Strategy" makes it difficult to do the job with out lying. Good luck playing by all the compliant rules... want to bring donuts or bagels in to a clinic? be prepared to do at least a half hour of paperwork. Everything is priority per management, but the focus tends to be stupid crap that won't help you get paid. i.e. focusing on a $60 product, instead of $700 product. Many clinics really hate Bayer and don't want to deal with us because we put out the OTC letter a few years back. Plus, not a ding against Bayer, but their is way to much competition in this industry. Bayer is a bit of an arrogant company, but their products really are the best. They feel they can charge more, and participate in less programs then competitors - and they are right because they are making up loss in the vet channel by selling in the stores.

    Advice to Management

    Let us play by the same rules as the competition. Be competitive with programs (i,e, buy 6 get 2 should be a given if everyone else is doing buy one get one free to the vets, or buy 6 get 3 free)
