    Pros

    Very organized as far as manufacturing is concerned. There is a great amount of support, proper training, spare parts are readily available for machinery, equipment is up to date, and great benefits. As far as production is concerned, I feel BD is one of the best companies to work for.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts are all that are available when working in production and that is rigidly held unless you're in extrusion or scrub. Overtime is also asked frequently. I've worked over 80 hours in a week at times. If you don't like hard work, this isn't for you. It's loud and you need to wear eat protection. This isn't much of the environment to sit and chat with people if that's what you like.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their job.

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. My manager is a great guy who genuinely cares about the success of his employees.

    Cons

    The company is very invested in it's old ways and does little to nothing to come into the present. They string people a long on contract to keep from having to pay benefits and end up wasting time in money continually training new people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting corners with your employees. Loyalty goes a long way and inspires people to want to give you their all.
