    I worked at Bard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are overall very friendly and easy to work with. It's a very nice suburban environment. The company is also growing.

    Cons

    Divisions are run very seperately. There's not always a clear definition for how HQs fits into the division or helps them. Growing parts of the company can experience frequent changes in strategy which can result in groups growing or disappearing very frequently. There is also a sort of global HR structure that develops people and helps them to grow. You really have to be able to defend yourself and your career to get where you want to be, more than at other companies I've seen.

    Advice to Management

    Mid-level management and higher does not seem very collaborative and certainly does not have each other back. The defensive politics can be a bit overwhelming at times.

    Pros

    There are opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work for it Wide breadth of products offers opportunities to gain experience in many areas

    Cons

    Benefits are only ok Tend to motivate with a stick rather than a carrot Seems timelines are more important than quality

    Pros

    Bard has some great people to work with. Very eager to help you learn when you don't understand something and there is definitely room for growth within Bard if you willing to work hard. The directors and below are great, the same can't be said for higher management.

    Cons

    By in large Human Resources is severely lacking. They are not there to help and only slow progression. When asked for help or a favor do not expect anything. Other Bard facilities, including corporate, have many basic amenities such work out facility and cafeteria; however Bard Peripheral Vascular has nothing of the sort. Work/ life balance is poor. In order to achieve carrer opportunities work will supersede life.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better work/ life balance as every program seems to be running extremely lean. Need makeover of human resources.
