Boehringer Ingelheim Employee
in Ridgefield, CT

"Poor leadership across the entire organization. Morale is super low and most employees are looking for other employment. Looks like the German owners are looking to divest US operations."

Boehringer Ingelheim Employee
in Bedford, OH

"I worked at BVL for two years. This was not a long time but it was enough time to know that the people that worked there cared about the work that they were doing, for the most part. There were barriers to be found, as in any industry, but for the most part people wanted to make sure that the work was done and that it was done right. It is unfortunate what happened but there are just some things that cannot be controlled no matter how hard everyone works towards making it better."

Executive Director of Finance

"BI is the 13th largest Pharma company in the world and also privately held. It is an excellent company to both work and develop. The decision has been made to wind down the manufacturing facility I am working at in Bedford, OH. I have been asked to stay and oversee the wind down, and have been offered continued employment at another BI location which necessitates relocating."

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative

What do you like about working at Boehringer Ingelheim?

"There are good things about working for a small pharma company that is conservative. This company at one time had VERY low turnover and was genuinely committed to taking care of it's people. The company was conservative in its practices long before the pharma guidelines forced itself on all pharma. BI has an excellent pipeline of products and a bright future."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Depending on where you live you have to be willing to relocate to move up in the ranks. Otherwise be happy as a rep. Show a passion for the medical science and being of value to physicians. Don't ask stupid stuff like what car will you drive. Focus on being an expert of your product and the disease state and a firm grasp of the 80/20 rule."

What don't you like about working at Boehringer Ingelheim?

"The culture is really changing. It's not just about sales anymore. You have to think in the box of compliance. You have metrics about reach, frequency, and calls per day regardless of access, regardless of distance.... Your relationship with your DM will make or break you so make sure you're on the same page or get out quick. They're a privately held company so layoffs aren't always public news the way most pharma companies are open with shareholders. They just laid off an entire sales division and they're still bragging about their pipeline. what! It's the same with all pharma though. Have a plan B."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop trying to keep up with big pharmaceutical companies. Stop bringing in upper management from big pharma companies to bring their ways in and dilute the culture. When you have new products stop hiring outside. Value and reward the people who have showed commitment to you and give them experience in new therapeutic areas (i.e. oncology). Stop pretending to listen and care about the lowest guy on the totem pole. We all know it's about trying to get business done and make a buck so stop passing out surveys and move on."
