Featured Review

Former Intern - Regulatory

I worked at Genentech

Pros

Great people and culture, I highly recommend it

Cons

I don't see any really

Former Employee - Project Manager

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

Pros

I joined in a junior role and due to the support of management managed to progress my career through three promotions in three years whilst there. The culture is great and you feel like you are... making a difference.

Cons

My only con is sometimes communication could feel slow on bug announcements however understand that the communication could be delayed from global hence the delay
