Bayer Inc Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Bayer AG, is a German multinational pharmaceutical and life sciences company and one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Headquartered in Leverkusen, Bayer's areas of business include human and veterinary pharmaceuticals; consumer healthcare products; agricultural chemicals, seeds, and biotechnology products. The company is a component of the Euro Stoxx 50 stock market index. Werner Baumann has been CEO since 2016.
According to THE NEW YORK TIMES in 2019, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson (who market Xarelto together) settled around 25,000 lawsuits on the blood-thinning drug Xarelto (rivaroxaban) by agreeing to disburse $775 million (US) to federal and state plaintiffs who said the companies had not properly warned patients about possible fatal bleeding as a result of ingesting the drug. There was no admission of liability from the companies in the settlement as they noted they had prevailed in six previous trials. The settlement will be divided evenly between the companies. Also in 2014 Khoshnood, M. and McHenry, L. researched for California State University how due to a cost-cutting measure in the mid-1980s, Bayer knowingly supplied hemophilia medication tainted with HIV to patients in Asia and Latin America, infecting thousands who later died of AIDS.
Assembler (Former Employee) says"● Work-life balanceWork-life balance at Bayer was okay if you like to be mistreated.● Pay & benefitsMy pay and benefits at Bayer are a joke● Job security and advancementIn terms of job security at Bayer, I think be ready for your next job.● ManagementIn general, managers at Bayer displayed explosive behavior. This is coming from the plant/ production manager. The ones that should hold themselves to the highest level and be willing to talk/ understand. They are the ones tearing you down. They will send other leaders to do their dirty work for them. Don’t you worry you will get their nasty behavior. If you are not at “their level” you are NOTHING!! Walking through the site and you see them... be ready to be ignored! If you greet them they will continue walking like they heard nothing. That’s because you are nothing to them, so they keep walking.● CultureCollaboration with my colleagues at Bayer was more like what collaboration with my colleagues. Look out for yourself if you want a job or a paycheck.● OverallMy experience working at Bayer was a toxic work environment. Poor leaders that are good to hide their bad qualities. Until, no one was watching. These are the people that stay on top. You will be jobless with them to counting their bonuses!NoneBayer management/ toxic environment"
Asst. Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Sales manipulation. Pushing of stocks. Doing unethical business. Forcefully taking resignation from there employees. No strong PMT. Poor Strategy. No Co- operation from the management."
Assembly Worker (Former Employee) says"supervisors were not understanding to employee concerns most of the time. New employees opinions were not taken seriously. staff rarely gave good feedback regarding employee work performancenothingeverything"
Accounting Staff (Former Employee) says"Complete lack of integrity from all levels of management and Human Resources. Employees are afraid to talk at the working place; they act as robots. Nothing human."
Insiritional director (Former Employee) says"Son muy poco agradecidos y buen trato con el personal no les importa las personas su cultura es una farsa aseamos los directivos alemanes discriminan y les gusta discrimar a la gente latina"
Marketing Communications Specialist (Former Employee) says"Poor management Poor benefits Overworked underpaid People are two faced No growth for employees No employee engagement People are not business trained"
Colaborator (Former Employee) says"Practici comuniste in cadrul unei companii americane."
Agronomic Research Specialist (Former Employee) says"Don't work there since they no longer exist. There is no point in going to work for the evil empire because they sold out and now are owned by Bayer so there is nothing there."
Sr. Scientist/Staff Scientist in Research (Current Employee) says"Things were fine when there was local American management. When the Germans took over, a junior person from Germany will run things like they do in Germany for 2 years. Then it's back to Germany for them and another junior German will take their place...Their managers don't want to be bothered...Is it any wonder that even experienced senior people are leaving?"
Lab Technician (Former Employee) says"Terrible place to work at! Would not recommend at all! The supervisor in charge of all the contract employees is rude and condescending. They expect you to work your butt off for the whole 8 hours every single day of the week. Even when we were giving it our all, it still was not good enough for our supervisor. The company expects a lot from their contract employees and cares little about their safety and well-being. The hardest part of the job is that it is incredibly repetitive. I accepted because I believed that I would gain experience and learn some lab techniques. Be warned it is NOT a lab job at all. You do medial repetitive work every single day with little chance for advancement. I did not learn anything while working here. The workplace culture was fast-paced and stressful. Sometimes we were expected to finish two days work in one day because they did not want to pay us for overtime. I think it is ridiculous as to how much they expect from their employees and the management definitely did not help at all. Instead of being helpful and encouraging the supervisor was angry and irritated most of the time. The other lab technicians that have been there for a while also seemed to think that they were in charge of the new contract employees as well and they would often talk down to us in a condescending manner. Terrible job and terrible management!"
Security Analyst (Former Employee) says"Very siloed environment no upward mobility Wizard of Oz mentality WHAT diversity? Kitchen staff is very nice, but I didn't work in the kitchen..RUN!!!"
Lab Technician (Current Employee) says"Contractors do all the work and get no credit. There is little to no chance for advancement. They never hire the contract employees for full-time permanent jobs."
Seed Technician (Former Employee) says"It was like the bad girls club, if you made a co worker mad it was like second grade all over again for the last person to get picked on a team. They never heard the overall story of the information they got things from they just took one side over the next."
HR Talent Specialist (Former Employee) says"The company only hires contracted 'employees,' because they do not want to risk of thinking of them as people. They are hired for numbers (based on the contract time offered), that are expected to work without any training. This position was overlooked by some inexperienced HR representatives and after working here for a short contract, I not only didn't get further recommendations from other employers due to Monsanto's terrible reputations, but I also didn't see Monsanto following their mission statement. I feel sorry for the poor migrant workers they have working in their factory with countless safety violations. Do not believe me, take a stroll through the company via a tour and see for yourself how on edge the employees are because they are afraid they will be let go.They pay well for a short timeTerrible employee training, terrible retention, blatant favortism, and overall just not a friendly work enviroment."
Research Associate (Former Employee) says"I had terrible time at Monsanto. Managers, director and HR lady harassed me very badly for my interest/ passion to learn and contribute in the science field that I was excited about. HR lady yelled at me to sign a paper that my manager framed lies about me. I am a 'A' student but they made me do the brainless labor works and never let me grow! I quit my full-time job there to start as a contractor in another company."
Polinator (Former Employee) says"We worked in corn fields. We didnt learn alot, The management was very nice. The workers were easy to work with and get along with. The heat was the hardest thing.No prosThe cons were it was a typical seasonal job that wasnt much fun"
Call Center Representative (Current Employee) says"It's a very stressful job, nothing to motivate employees to work, no communication with the managers and not very helpful. And managers always have an attitude."
Merchandiser (Former Employee) says"Bayer has poor management, It's a seasonal position and you will work your butt off driving to 15 stores every two weeks. You are putting up displays and packing out your merchandise. But, If for some reason the company has no more use for you after the season is over, they will not give you any explanation in why they are letting you go? I never have taken a day off from work and in each store that I have attendant my duties in putting up displays and packing out my merchandise. I have gotten nothing but praises from all of the other store managers.15 breaks and LunchPoor Communication"
Regional sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Enjoyable job meeting doctors/ discussing with them about our products. Assisting medical reps close a sales, achieved an efficient and effective detailing callenhance communication skillslong hours"
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says"work like a dog with equipment that shouldn't even be in service, "competitive wages" is a joke unless you are comparing the wages to McDonalds, If you plan to advance here better be the laziest person around bc the people that work hard daily dont mean squat to this company, not even guaranteed a 40hr work week bc if it rains a half inch you go home and sit sometimes for 2 days...nobody actually cares about even working there, supervisors dont care, sleep in their trucks, some employees even sleep in the equipment DURING the work day, and guess what they still have a job!... Dont fall for the "Employee owned" BS bc its NOT....But if your lazy and like to play on your phone all day, go for it...you can become a supervisor, the most enjoyable part about working here was being able to not have to go back to this place another day of my lifenoneEverything"
