    Pros

    The attorney's I worked for were professional and fair. They gave me the opportunity to learn procedures that I did not know. They were like managers of yore, they didn't mind teaching me.

    Cons

    The permanent employee returned . Also, our of 3,000 employees in the San Jose office there were less than five African Americans

    Advice to Management

    Remember that diversity includes people of color not just Filipinos and Mexicans.

    Pros

    Good benefits with nice 401K saving plan

    Cons

    BD medical has very good codes and conducts and core values BAZINGA!!!

    Big company like BD Medical deficient in their codes, conduct and core values. There is no such thing like retaliation is prohibited if anyone speak up the truth about another associates or managers unusual observations or attitude or hostile act or anything questionable.

    Supervisor or Managers retaliated against employees whoever stood up for the right. If any associates diaagreed with their Managers (end of the year evaluation rating), double standard, unfair treatment, or if the boss belittle or yelled in front of their peers, or politics talks, an associates tried to raised their voice, guess what happen? Within a month out of retaliation, first that associate was given Performance Improvement followed by hostile environment, Manipulation and tortured to the point that either associate quit or terminated in front of Sandy Police like that associate did the biggest crime of the world.

    In other big companies there have reformatted and revised codes and conduct policy with the statement "retaliation is prohibited in any case"

    Advice to Management

    BD codes and conducts core values need to be reformatted and updated with addition of statement "Retaliation is prohibited in any case". HR should be rotated and need more training to be more like true human resources. Ethic online report should be kept anonymous and final report need to be given to the BD corporate in Franklin Lakes, in this way no conflict of interest and neutral HR handle the situation quietly.
    Every employee no matter what level they are or what race or religion they have, All should be treated kindly and fairly without any retaliation.
