One of the best organization in the world

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I started job in Bayer in back home , After moving to Canada , I got job in Bayer Canada (10 Years ago). Bayer is one of the great organization upper management set very clear rules so ultimately local management is good. unfortunately Bayer sold their few products to BASF , very very bad luck my job was transfer to one of the worst organization. Now i have quit BASF. But there is no Bayer plant in Regina . No choice to re join Bayer.

Pros

lots of chances for advancement

Cons

Some bad people always in any organizations

Bayer - Carman MB Site

Worked this location for just shy of 4 years. People were great. Pay was great. All the overtime you could want. Spring 2021 everything changed. There was no respect or value given to returning employees. Opinions and experience were no longer valued. 3 of us who were consider Crew Leaders were let go with no reason given. Two of us, myself included were not even given the decency of a notice. They just chose to not pick up the phone for harvest season. Very unprofessional. Have zero skills in addressing contractor concerns or issues with staff. Would rather hide from a problem and never call you back than address it like civilized adults. They have no shame. No honor. I would not recommend taking a position at this location.

Pros

Plenty of OT. Winters off for contractors

Cons

Lack of professionalism, Poor leadership skills, Zero conflict management, Poor employee skills screening

Productive good co-worker associations

While at Bayer. Was able to assist and solve client and company issues. In the last few years company policies went from employee considerations to profit and loss. Company downsizing was a result of the new policies. Working with company clients and employees was rewarding but uncertainties with job and work futures made it harder to focus on job at hand. I still found while working at Bayer, most days went home with feelings of accomplishment.

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere

Cons

Employees asked to always push harder

Supportive, great supervisors

Great, supportive place to work with a strong emphasis on safety and openness around near-miss scenarios in order to improve tasks and help everyone stay mindful of hazards, at work and outside of work. Supervisors were great and wanted to see the crew succeed, often spending days out in the field with us. Quite physical with lots of walking, not very intellectually stimulating

Very stressful

Very grateful for the opportunity given to me. Stressful and demotivating not because of the workload but due to the way the unit was managed. People not qualified for the job were brought in because their relatives knew so and so. Even the (bilingual) job conditions were tailor made to accommodate and promote these persons ( whose knowledge in french language, both written and spoken, was less than basic). The new manager (who is not bilingual) recruited a bilingual agent and later on found that the agent's french was not satisfactory and other bilingual agents in the unit had to check and correct her work on a daily basis. That agent and another one who is not bilingual were offered permanent jobs while others who were more qualified had their contracts terminated. The head of the unit had such a low review but she was simply transferred to another department. The hr people could not respond to my queries. An agent who had many many years of experience as manager was denied the post because she was not bilingual but later the job was given to somebody who is not bilingual. Not a healthy environment to work in. ...........

Productive and interesting work place

I loved working at Bayvet (division) of the Bayer company. Management were very respectful and helpful. The atmosphere was great and the people varied in personalities. My job was interesting ordering biologicals and pharmaceuticals for veterinarians. I love animals and I processed customer orders from start to completion. I found the products very interesting and learned what vets use for large and small animals in their practices.

Good wage too many hours for a short period

Working at Monsanto at the time was tedious due to the nature of the work and the work atmosphere did not do a lot to alleviate that, although they tried to encourage us with nice meals and ice cream treats since it was summer.

Really bad dysfunctional place that's never properly cleaned.

I used to work for Bayer as a short term contractor and went to another interview for a longer contract. I would honestly say to stay away from those short term contracts - they will bring you nothing good. You'll lose precious time finding actual job while working like a slave for Bayer for measly $14/h. Mind you, this was the same salary I had with no completed education a year prior in a much smaller local lab. But according to the manager this job was perfect for a recent graduate! On the first day they'll butter you up how they regularly hire from their short term contractors if an opening comes up - so your hopes are high and you actually have an incentive to do your job well. However, what they don't tell you is that almost everyone you see working there is on that same contract you have, which means if there is an opening in the company, almost all of your coworkers are now your competition to get the job! So good luck with that. About the work/culture there - it really is a mixed bag. It seems like everyone is just pretending to like you, especially at the beginning. But once they figured out we were temporary everyone forgot about us. I mean, even the supervisor would never check up on us to see how it goes, we were joking with my coworkers that you might as well not show up to work and no one will notice! Additionally, if you enjoy a group of foreigners to talk in their foreign language while you and your coworker sit on the same table wondering why these adults are acting like preschool kids then maybe Bayer is the right choice for you. This type of separation -

A great company, very advanced in terms of Technology

I liked Bayer for its work/Life balanced, very well organised, you have the options to book appointment with management to discuss your opinion. The workplace culture is a team work, everyone from our team or others teams is willing to provide help. Many rooms for meetings. The subsidized kitchen is a plus

Pros

The subsidized kitchen is a plus

Cons

Some long hours not much
