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.
