    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.
