    I worked at Bard Access Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    • Great people working there. • Stable and steady job security. • Decent healthcare benefits. • Industry leader in Medical Device products. • Positive feeling that your work projects help make patients lives better.

    Cons

    • Low competitive salary/compensation. It's known internally that Bard pays the minimum they can get away with and still keep people around for a while. It's been quoted by the HR department, "if you want to make more money, go work for someone else". • This is a great place to gain experience before moving on to bigger/better career opportunities. • Promotions are far and few between, with minimal annual wage increases (less than 2% increases) • In smaller departments, it is nearly impossible to move up and advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the Bureaucracy and obscene amount of processes! Bard has a highly bureaucratic culture that makes it very difficult to complete projects without frustrations and pushing back deadlines. There are so many processes, checks and balances that they get in the way of being able to do your job.

    I worked at Bard Access Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. It seems like HR is trying to create a positive work environment but individual groups have their own agenda and rules.

    Cons

    Poor management. Training is minimal. High pressure environment with little collaborating or teamwork. Management is disinterested in employee satisfaction and the work/life balance is out of wack. Little feedback of a positive or negative nature. No commitment from management to you as an employee. Truly an awful place to work. Felt like I had stepped back in time to the 1960's in regards to management style.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and evaluate yourselves. There are a lot of things you could do to improve the culture.

    Pros

    I have interned at BAS for about a year and am very impressed with the company. They seem to treat their employee's very well putting in a lot of effort to make it a great work atmosphere and having activities monthly that are both engaging and family oriented.

    Cons

    I have heard some negative comments about the sales team but other than that most teams seem to have great management and leadership

    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Bard Access Systems full-time (More than a 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
