    Pros

    Good place for Indian housewives to retire while "working" and not adding any value to the role.

    Cons

    Not good for intelligent and techie people.
    If you are intelligent and knowledgeable and explain how things can be better, you will be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about technology

    Pros

    There are some highly competent and fun people to work with here. The pay and benefits are competitive. The culture is easy going and pretty much stress free.

    Cons

    Nothing ever happens here. One project after another gets cancelled. Carefusion has not been able to put out a new product in 12 years. Any new ideas are squashed by the "old Guard (e.g. GB) that want to keep the status quo and control their little kingdoms. The same meetings covering the same tired material are held literally for years. Boredom and frustration reign supreme.
    If you're a technical professional my advice is to stay away. But, if you're looking for a place to kick back and hide, and don't mind being bored, this is a good place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to make something new. Complete a few new development programs (beside software add-ons).

    Pros

    Fantastic Company, and the co-workers are even better. They strive for improved process at a national Level

    Obtaining information on products and process can constantly change, and obtaining the correct information can be challenging.

    Streamline Directory (DIG/Implementation Portal), Improve the Small Parts OE directory/process.

    Pros

    I am allowed to do remote / telecommuting work even if my status is just an intern. My manager is able to give me all the resources I need to be successful in my job.

    Cons

    It has been a year since I was hired as an intern. Up until now, and even with a very good review from my manager, I have not been offered a full time position.

    Advice to Management

    The management should be cognizant of the skills and potential of its employees and make sure that they retain those that will be an asset to the company.

    Pros

    Employees on the operation floor are loyal to each other. Teams work together. The benefits are good including 401K, Health Insurance, and Paid time off.

    Cons

    Management has no value in workers over 50. For the last 5 years older workers are targeted and forced to leave the company. Many of the employees forced out over 50 have worked with the company 10-20 years. Years of service, seniority, and knowledge mean nothing to Management. Quantity overrides quality.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to stop compromising their integrity for their year end bonus. People that have been loyal for many years to the company offer both quantity and quality in the assembled products. Management should not be allowed to make promises they have no intention of keeping to anyone. Value the employees you already have.
