    I worked at Bard Access Systems

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and many talented and intelligent people. They are driven to produce great products.

    Cons

    Company policy, work hours, dress code, drinking alcohol, promotions etc. applied to some but not all – HR discretion.
    The handbook states that you can’t be promoted until you have been with the company for a year, however, this only applies to some and not others – HR discretion.
    Promotions not based on hard work or productivity, but how well you sucked up to your manager.
    Higher expectations imposed on some employees and not others within the same department. This is a form of harassment that was tolerated by the HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please open your eyes. You can’t continue to reward the slackers while ignoring the real people getting the work done. When multiple employees complain about a manager or other employee because of unethical or improper behavior, they should be taken seriously and not punished. The company and HR department needs to follow its own policies and promote a happy and healthy work environment for all.

    Pros

    Work environment is great, everyone is very nice and gets a long. BARD also does a good job of being ethical and trying to meet patients needs.

    Cons

    People stay for a long time so there is nowhere to go up except to find another company.
    Sometimes interns dont get as much credit as they should.
    Sometimes gets a little boring, but that is going to be most jobs.

    I have been working at Bard Access Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I have been an intern at BAS for over 6 months and I really enjoy the atmosphere at the company and those I work with. Great pay even for an intern, awesome benefits of working here with different group and company wide activities

    Cons

    I am looking to go full-time and it seems to be a very long, drawn-out process for internal candidates to get promoted. I have been told this by several people and the feeling seems to be that once you are here they can take as long as they would like to hire you because you won't go anywhere; whereas external candidates get moved on quickly so as not to lose them to a competitor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat internal candidates like gold, I might be willing to wait a little longer than an external candidate, but holding me up sours me towards the company.

    Current Employee - R&D Tech III in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at Bard Access Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Bard Access Systems is outstanding when it comes to treating their employees. Not only are the medical benefits fantastic, but company parties occur throughout the year. Management is always seeking their employees' opinions on how they can do things better. The people and atmosphere are just magnificent. There are lots of opportunities for growth and promotion.

    Cons

    Working in the medical device industry requires a very large attention to detail. There is lots of paper work and it's not for those who weary quickly of monotony and repetitive tasks (Technicians only). The Perks Points system is a little lame. Other than that, it's a pretty great place

    Pros

    Learned a ton and had the opportunity to work with some great people. The work is fun and challenging. Good things starting to happen to foster teamwork and a better work environment.

    Cons

    Company doesn't seem to reward commitment. Being hired on full time seems quite political and doesn't foster a good transition.

    Pros

    Company culture, work hard play hard, great work life balance. On-site cafeteria, gym, free yoga, zumba, way awesome benefits (100% no deductible) Very smart people, collaborative atmosphere, adopting new technologies, fast pace environment.

    Cons

    Remote location, there really isn't a nice neighborhood within 10 miles. Sometimes tough to promote in small departments. Corporate is way slow to adopt more efficient, modern processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work life balance unevenly distributed, I have been lucky but not everyone shares my luck.

    I worked at Bard Access Systems full-time

    Pros

    They are truly sincere about the quality of their products and patient care and comfort. Benefits are great. Good bonuses for salaried people. Those who are good at sucking up are more likely to succeed. Rapid advancement for personal friends of the HR Manager.

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on quality or quantity of work, or length of service, but on whose butt you are willing to kiss. The company motto, "We've always done it that way" and we are not going to change. They don't value their employees and would rather hire new ones. The mentality of the HR department is that you should be happy to have a job, no matter how badly we treat you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employee morale is low. Too many low level managers and each with a different set of rules and expectations. Enforcement of rules and policies should be the same for everyone. Appreciate your employees and quit treating them like they are expendable.
