    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    BI offered some of the most comprehensive, yet difficult product training compared to many other pharmaceuticals companies. But they did make sure that everyone was prepared to hit the field running.

    Cons

    Promotional materials they provided were sub-par. More clinical data to support the products would have been very helpful. HR department was not very helpful when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Management did a wonderful job with individual coaching. Increasing the pipeline would ensure career longevity within the sales force and help with retention.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Values employees, good work atmosphere, managers are realistic, RD's are good. Typical pharma company with call plans and budgets. BI promotes and develops its employees within.

    Cons

    Not the greatest at product launches, very conservative for marketing materials and what reps are allowed to share. Upper management seems good but doesn't always let bottom levels in on details

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive in the market place while still being compliant. Dont be so afraid to make more risk/benefit assessments to allow the field reps to go out there and do their jobs even better.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some great employees and managers, fairly easy training with fun trainers. Good benefits. Not overly competitive, fairly conservative when it comes to sales pieces and distribution of information. Great R&D, comfort in knowing the drugs are some of the best on the market.

    Cons

    Company "feel" changing vastly due to new corporate ideologies. No more "family" atmosphere with exciting meetings and happy employees excited about their jobs. Very dry and stale. Benefits including PTO days and small perks disappearing. One of the lowest paid companies been though they do so well.

    Advice to Management

    Care more for your employees, particularly your sales force. Small treats that seem meaningless are worthwhile and feeling fairly compensated for work performed is paramount. Train Managers to work with reps better.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pto is great - car benefits are good. Average medical

    Cons

    Poor management - can not have ideas even though they say you can .... They hire loud rude obnoxious reps who quite honestly annoy doctors .. Managers always looking to put reps on coaching and performance plans... Managers use favoritism for their teams and it's pretty obvious. Drag down your moral focus mainly on their preconceived competencies and what you could do better than praise for Anything that is... positive ... Turn your words against you in a very negative spin..

    Advice to Management

    Maybe you need to learn how to really manage and moral and productivity would increase.

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim

    Pros

    If you have a good Manager, the job can be very rewarding. The training is excellent and the compensation is adequate.

    Cons

    If you have a bad Manager, the job as good as it is can be devastating. Depending on your manager will depend if you can survive in this job.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advise for Management because the policies that are put in place by the Company stands and there is nothing you can do about it.

    I worked at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company makes efforts to reimburse employees fairly during bonus time.

    Cons

    Too many reps in field, went through massive lay-offs. Company culture changed.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency in Company Culture is what gives a company a reputation. The culture has changed too much to call it consistent. Values appear to be something stated, not followed. Determine true values and attempt to stick to it. This will allow for company reputation to become solid.

    I have been working at Boehringer Ingelheim full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong pipeline, management that cares about the salespeople and decent products - in some cases - best in class drugs. After recent layoff they kept some people that they let go as extras in the regions then they plug them back into vacancies a few months later - good way to retain people following a negative company event.

    Cons

    They lay off their sales people every few years as part of a restructuring; however, the same can be said for the majority of other companies in the industry. They don't pay their people that well in comparison to what other companies are offering. Slow to promote, especially if you end up with a territory disadvantaged by poor managed care access.

    Advice to Management

    Pay talent a more competitive salary, offer more opportunities for advancement. Need better managed care access in many territories to compete with other products out there.
