    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Toronto, ON
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Bayer full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great company culture, family oriented Growth opportunity is there especially if you’re in the General Medicine division

    Cons

    -Crazy hours, work life balance is not great -They stunt your pay especially if you started your career there. If this is the case, expect to always be on the lower end of the pay band. Totally sucks but they’ll never do anything about it. Your best bet is to come to Bayer after many years of experience.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Bayer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A very coordinated, efficient and resourceful company with a strong pool of talent to learn from. Lots of internal initiatives to develop and learn about other functions. Great flexible benefits that are workable across all demographics of employees.

    Cons

    Efficiencies also means that your pay is less attractive than some of the other pharma companies out there. Their incentive system is now linked to the company as a whole, so individual performance is only linked to whether you keep your job or not.
