About
Daniel

I've been at Bayer over 20 years, and it's a great place to work. The relationships I've developed here, the diversity of our workforce, and the opportunity to work on products that really make a difference for people, make my daily 170 mile round trip commute worth it to me. I also appreciate how supportive the company has been during my tours of active duty, including one that lasted 3.5 years.

My group checks all the raw material for Bayer's hemophilia products to ensure consistency and quality. We work to ensure that our products are safe and won't harm our patients.

In the military I learned how to work with and get along with people from all different walks of life, which has helped me as I've moved up in my career at Bayer. The military develops soldiers into leaders early on, and the skills in patience, discipline and focus that I acquired as a drill sergeant and in other roles have served me well as a supervisor. I can work effectively with people with different personalities, work ethics and interpersonal skills so we become a team that produces great results.

The biggest difference I've noticed between civilian and military work is that in the military, you need certain specific assignments to be promoted. But there are lots of ways to advance in the corporate world. So be prepared for flexibility and freedom of choice, and take advantage of as many opportunities and training as you can.

About
Aaron

At Bayer, I am a study director and technical expert working in our Research and Development group to prepare protocols, assemble resources and monitor the field and greenhouse portions of our research studies. All of our agricultural products have to comply with USDA and FDA regulations in the U.S., as well as with the regulatory agencies in different countries—and Bayer operates in almost every country in the world. If our products aren't approved by those regulatory bodies, we can't sell them in that country.

The best part of my job is that it is different every day. Being a self-starter is important in this work, as is being analytical and detail-oriented while still seeing the bigger picture. I also love being part of a team at Bayer that helps feed the world and where I can use my scientific knowledge in agriculture to aid the U.S. Army.

Cindy

I retired from the Air Force in 2013 after 21 years, and have been at Bayer ever since. I enjoy working here; people have strong respect for one another, and the support is terrific. Personal and professional development is encouraged and available. It's a great environment.

Much like in the military, I have many different roles in my job at Bayer. I handle standard administrative duties for seven managers. As part of that job, I am also the supply clerk, IT guide, event coordinator, and the local HR liaison. Last but not least, I'm the Site Coordinator for high performance culture initiatives for eight North American Bayer sites.

Skills I developed in the Air Force such as prioritization, organization, and knowing when to ask for help have been valuable, but my experience working with a diverse work force has been priceless. As a global company, Bayer employees understand the importance of working as a team to reach our goals.

A few things surprised me in my transition from military to corporate life. People look at and approach you differently in your uniform based on your rank. Out of uniform, you're a regular civilian who has to start from scratch to earn respect and develop your reputation with each new person you meet and work with.
Unlike in the military, people in the corporate world don't have to follow orders. Knowing how to motivate and influence people are important skills. My first recommendation: be patient. It's a big change, so take your time and remember to ask for help.
Most important, find yourself a purpose, one that inspires you and keeps you going. Military personnel feel a sense of purpose when they are wearing a uniform, and when that uniform gets tucked away in a closet, we tend to lose that feeling of purpose. I encourage you to get involved in a veterans program or a local charity that you feel passionate about.

I was initially hired to work in the Regulatory Quality Assurance Unit due to my background as a microbiologist and experience in quality and process improvement. My military occupation was Military Police. You live and work with your team who you respect and trust with your life. I've had many responsibilities as an MP, including patrols, reconnaissance, raids, convoy and personnel escorts, vehicle recovery, establishing and maintaining physical security and training foreign police officers.

While specific tasks and environments vary greatly from daily work at Bayer, both require agility, investigation, problem solving, and being able to foster relationships with people of diverse backgrounds. Both require leadership, integrity, operational excellence and creative approaches to accomplishing goals. Both require the ability to understand and evaluate the ‘grey areas' and look for ways to mitigate risk and take action when required. Both require a passion for doing what's right and making things better for other people.
