Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Regina, SK – June 7, 2013
Pros: great people and perks
Cons: very little work load
A typical day at work included data entry, assisting where needing and covering reception (once a week). I worked with some very nice people, who made everyday fun. The hardest part of my job was the fact that I didn't have much work to do, my work was project based but my manager didn't always get me a project to do right away. The most enjoyable was – more... the community of people there, the company treated everyone well, including fishing trips, golfing days, bbqs and other team building activities.
The first year at Bayer I was in a different department where I was busier, it included maintaining customer data bases where it be updating information, adding a new customer or deleting a customer. I set up pricing for products, as well as tracked reports and assisted the Customer Service Reps with projects. – less
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee), Calgary, AB – June 11, 2012
Pros: glad to be gone from there.
Cons: wasn't gone soon enough!
Not very well organized - subsidiary company that I worked for was a very successful and a great company with respect for their employees. Since Bayer took over and swallowed up the little company, the 'blue chip' HUGE international imposed their corporate 'culture' on the little company that could, and in the process killed all originality and everything – more... good that once existed at very successful small company. – less

Sr. Associate Development Scientist (Former Employee), Berkeley, CA – September 23, 2014
This is a good place to learn the basics of working for a mid/large size company. Unfortunately, there is extremely limited opportunity for advancement in research and development. While the production side is not necessarily hampered by this constraint, careers on that side of the fence come their own overhead.

Current direct management micromanages every aspect of position duties
Quality Auditor II (Current Employee), Saint Joseph, MO – September 11, 2014
Cons: overtime and micromanagement
A typical day at work involves being reminded of the schedule given the day before, being checked on to see if you are following the schedule, management assumes the worst about employees. Unpaid last minute overtime is the norm for my department.

I really enjoyed my – more... time there. – less
