    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    At least at corporate, the location is prime. Most of the people are there for the right reasons. Most other "pro's" like flexibility, work/life, and culture must be tempered with, 'it depends who your boss is'.

    Cons

    Simply put, the density of directors and above occupying their positions for reasons primarily to do with who they know, rather than how good they are, is heavy.
    The culture has become, "how to acquire and maintain an office". An office becomes particularly necessary when you don't know what the heck you are doing, so at least you can keep your door closed to pretend you are occupied with things more important than improving processes and mentoring employees; not that many CFN directors/above could do it if they actually wanted to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand and appreciate the line level workload created by managers/directors who either don't know what they are doing, or simply aren't good managers. Stop doing more with less. That extra 2 cents/share isn't worth it.

    Pros

    Exposure to everyday medical technology and working on important projects for a company that has large market share.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with the work force. No trust between business units, and in some cases, there's actual turf wars that have been raging for years. Quality processes are bureaucratic and ineffective. Managers turn a deaf ear to quality concerns from their engineering subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more credence to technical experts.

    Tends to not treat all employees the same. Rewards, luncheons, work from home only offered in certain departments.

    Pros

    Overall, good company to work for.

    Cons

    It's too bad they don't treat similiar departments equally. It all depends who you work for and what department you fall under. Monthly onsite happy hours, luncheons, rewards, work for home opportunities only for certain departments. Other departments you don't get any perks. Not even a desk calendar.

    Pros

    Good people (mostly) working there.

    Cons

    They had stealth terminations; every couple of weeks you'd hear of some more people you know being laid off. Never knew when or if you'd be next.
