    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Traveling. Lots and lots of it. From within the US and to Canada and other countries when we are needed.

    Cons

    The chances of getting a permanent position for contractors are very slim. There are contractors that have been with the company for more than 5 years and have not been offered a permanent position within the company.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best coworkers I could ever ask for! If managment cared half as much about putting out a good product and taking care of our customers as the typical worker the companys share price would easily be double of what it is.

    Cons

    Terrible upper managment destroying long term success for short term earnings.
    products pushed out before they are ready.
    benifits have slowly been cut over the years.
    No respect for work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the company and less about your bonus the people under you know how to achieve great things get out of there way and let them do it.

    Tends to not treat all employees the same. Rewards, luncheons, work from home only offered in certain departments.

    Pros

    Overall, good company to work for.

    Cons

    It's too bad they don't treat similiar departments equally. It all depends who you work for and what department you fall under. Monthly onsite happy hours, luncheons, rewards, work for home opportunities only for certain departments. Other departments you don't get any perks. Not even a desk calendar.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent products, work life balance. and great people. Management allows Sales reps the autonomy to do their job but there to support if needed.

    Cons

    Hard to track progress due to delay in incentive plan and quota. Future is slightly cloudy because of BD acquisition .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the employees in mind when determining the direction of the company.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, lots of flexibility, decent support from managment.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for growth depending on the department. Not sure what will happen with BD. Too much uncertainty. Would have recommended to a friend but now it might be a risk depending on office location.

    Pros

    Good people (mostly) working there.

    Cons

    They had stealth terminations; every couple of weeks you'd hear of some more people you know being laid off. Never knew when or if you'd be next.

    People are solid, well meaning, caring. Management wants micro-managing, punitive management style.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Broad product set with lots of opportunities for growth by moving roles within teams / business units. Strong focus on patient safety and helping to improve the safety of caregivers and patients.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation - lots of lip service but most projects are evolutionary extensions of sacred cow projects.
    Too much focus on short term revenue opportunities and not enough long term strategic planning / execution.
    Management promotes those who micro-manage and are punitive. Lip service about collaboration and employee satisfaction when what they really want is results at any cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the long term sustainable competitive advantages
    Cultivate true innovation by starting new projects and investing in new technologies / opportunities
    Stop micro managing - believe in your teams, give them freedom to be responsible
