Organization pays well, but money isn't everything.
Pros: good pay
Cons: poor management in certain areas, low morale, negative atmosphere, physically taxing, mentally taxing and miserable place to work.
I have worked for Boehringer Ingelheim for almost 5 years now. The work can be physically taxing, depending on which department you work in. There is a lot of standing, walking, very repetitive lifting and loading. Management in my department has certain leaders that lack integrity, empathy for employees and some lack mental stability. While there are great leaders at this company union workers rarely get to see or speak with them and due to a fear based environment any feedback on supervisors is rarely communicated to those great leaders.
The pay is very good, but like I said, money isn't everything. I work 3 twelve hour shifts and it is hard on the body and the mind. I do not see my kids for three days. The job is physically demanding on your back and ergonomics is unheard of. Most supervisors and managers in my department do not care about their employees or what their employees have to say. It's an environment that is based on the idea that we pay you more than anyone else so we can treat you however we like. And that's when they get you paycheck right, which is about 60% of the time.
Human resources is not a safe haven for employees to run to either. Unless you like having someone role their eyes at you and speak to you in a condescending manner the entire time.
Bottom line is, in my department, most management treats you very bad, the morale is low and most workers have given up and do not do any work, which makes it so much harder for those of us that do care about our work. For most workers I know the only enjoyable part is punching out.
