    I have been working at BD full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    BD's company values are very strong. My coworkers are generally a pleasure to work with. If you're on a big project, there can be many good travel opportunities, which is an added bonus

    Cons

    The work-life balance can be challenging on tough projects. Training can also be difficult to come by too. I've found it difficult to get promoted at BD. There is a tendency to hire outside instead of promoting from within.

    Learning Managements Systems Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  West Jordan, UT

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at BD.

    Interview Details

    4 to 5 days after applying the hiring manager emailed me to line up a phone interview. The phone interview was fairly standard and she said she'd email to schedule an in person interview. I sent my customary thank you email later that day. After several days passing with no reply I followed up again to schedule the face to face interview. At that interview, I met with the same hiring manager (and potential boss) and an HR member. Both ladies were cold, going through the motions, but lacking any passion. I should have known then, I was not the person they were looking for, though I was well qualified and the position seemed like a good fit. I left feeling like they were both so tired they couldn't possibly dish out basic human politeness. Still I continued to follow up every 4 (or so) days until they emailed saying the position was filled.
