Talent Acquisition Officer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 January 2018
I had an amazing experience at Bayer - very professional environment with high learning culture. It has immense growth opportunities. My experience at Bayer was wonderful in terms of learning, growth, and fun. My boss gave me a chance to explore other HR function by taking different projects and also work cross-functionally to learn more about business.
work life balance, too many interactive fun events
Work-life balance is poor - especially in the summer for field workers. However, pay rates and perks are good.
Agronomist (Current Employee) – AB, Canada – 20 December 2017
The work and work hours varies greatly through the year. Winter is generally slower and devoted to preparation for the following summer and educational courses. In the summer, hours increase dramatically with long hours spent traveling between office and sites as well as working there. 60-80 hour weeks are not uncommon. Consequently stress levels can be very high. Field work includes site selection, site preparation, seeding, weed and pest control, plant observations and harvest.
vehicle for personal use, free meals while in field
Very long hours during summer months, heavy work load.
Canola Seed Cleaner (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 3 December 2017
I worked as a contract canola seed cleaning employee (Bayer CropScience). This position is great for someone who needs to make a decent amount of cash over a contract period. At my particular location there was very little to no chance of advancement OR permanent employment, which made the job somewhat frustrating for a lot of employees who dedicated many years of contract work with this company. Plenty of opportunity for overtime but it is required to work long hours and to come in when the help is needed. Great people to work with every day but the work is quite mundane and boring. A big part of their procedures were outdated and still on paper (vs. electronic).
Lots of overtime, great starting wage, great employees
Long hours, not much for work-life balance, no opportunity for advancement or permanent employment
Talent Acquisition Specialist (Former Employee) – Distrito Federal – 28 September 2017
Great company with great facilities where I improve myself in a professional aspect. The facilities are located in a very conflicted area about traffic that at the end it become a problem because yo make 1 - 2 hours of travel.
Good culture generally but be wary of who you work for
Controller (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 15 April 2017
Been here for a while and its been good. Things get done and colleagues are generally good. Recently there has been some restructures so it has created some latent unhappiness but the pay and above average bonus covers that up. If you just want to do your job and go home to your family, its a good company. I think the worst team to possible work for is controlling due to poor leadership.
Product Excellence Associate (Former Employee) – Strathmore, AB – 29 November 2016
Bayer Admin team was great - lots of great experiences and a great work environment. However worked alone most days, based out of Strathmore. Was not as enjoyable as compared to working in a team environment, where help was readily available if needed.

Technician (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 9 September 2016
I only worked there for a year with no possibility of extension so basically no job security. I found it difficult to meet new people in different work groups due to a clicky environment. The people that were nice were very helpful or somewhat accepting. Different work areas were given preferential treatment so that caused riffs among people at the company. There was definitely a lack of training provided by staff members either because they were too busy or it wasn't worth their time considering they were training short term contracts. Strong management was also lacking in both GH and Lab groups which caused poor morale. Contract positions were not valued to the same extent as permanent staff. I found that there was also poor communication within a work group as well as between work groups.
Many staff lunches and events
Work group pettiness and favoritism. Poor communication overall within breeding station.
