    I have been working at CareFusion (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    lots of opportunity to move within different business units

    Cons

    some BU leaders are to focused on office politic and managing their careers upwards to be true leaders and help drivebusiness forward and meet cutomer challenges.. More monday morning quarterbacks looking to share a win or place blame. Poitical wind blows they bend with it and run the bus over their team in a heart beat.. Most evident with client group region leaders representing all bu's. No real defined culture. each BU has own culture and sales culture is driven by old Glen Garry type dinosaur.

    Advice to Management

    New BD ownership, don't be taken in by funny glib ones. Define a company wide culture not fifedom cultures

    Good technical leadership, good design practices, robust design control, great team members, freedom to focus on actual design and engineering work, good work life balance, not being micro-managed, mangers able to shield me from unnecessary politics that slows down my work.

    lower pay than other companies, pricey health insurance, some politics, recent BD acquisitions induces a lot of uncertainties within organizations.

    Advice to Management

    increase bonus % to match with other med tech companies, provide product development plans for longer horizon such as 3 to 5 yrs, develop tangible career plan to spell out what needs to be done in order to get promoted with what time frame
