    I have been working at BD as an intern (less than a year)


    BD has a very corporate culture, with a lot of workers trying to climb up in the company. The Franklin Lakes location has over 2000 people, so there is a very wide range of types of people. There are the completely introverted people who don't speak or look up in passing, there are the outgoing, friendly socialites who will introduce themselves and wish you good luck on your first few weeks, and there is everything in between. The R&D department is very laid back, with lots of great people who don't get too crazy about the job. You're sort of left on your own to get your work done, but what is expected of you is clearly laid out. There is a lot of work to be done, but it's not stressful. Everyone is willing to give a helping hand or help solve a problem. The on-site gym and cafeteria are good perks, too.


    If tests need to be run for the next day and you're not finished in eight hours, you're going to be in the lab until the tests are finished. Fluorescent lighting and stale office air can be taxing for eight hours a day, but this is one of the most easy-going jobs I have had. I am an engineering lab intern, so that explains some of the relaxed attitude, but from what I see and hear no one gets too stressed out on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I'm an intern I won't be dealing with management too much, but R&D has an open door policy with anyone in charge. If their office door is open, you can walk in and chat about whatever you like.

    Positive Outlook
