    Pros

    - The company corners the market and always has customers
    - Good pay
    - Big company with lots of resources
    - Good benefits
    - Easy to stand out and do a good job

    Cons

    - Lots of people who only think about themselves and their career and won't lift a finger unless it directly affects them
    - Somewhat disorganized, not run like a tight ship
    - Many people don't care about the job, the product, or their coworkers
    - Brown nosing is rewarded as much or more than hard work
    - The good people often get let go and they keep the drones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the revolving door hiring and lay offs. Managers need to keep their employees for more time instead of always having to train new ones.

    Former Employee - Contract Specialist in San Diego, CA

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    None! You can work all the overtime you want. It'll provide a paycheck while the job search continues. Nice co-workers, but beware who you talk to, corporate politics always at work.

    Cons

    Long hours, unending work loads, zero recognition for performance, abysmal job/pay progression. This company thrives on inefficiency and excessive top heavy management, pointless ineffective corporate reorgs (4 over the 3 yrs I was there), company touts an 80/20 promote within "concept"; to the contrary of reality, exclusive "boys club" only the close-knit few get the opportunity progress. Zero work life balance.

    Employee are treated as objects being passed from one group to the next. Employee morale could not possibly be lower.

    Best case scenario for rewarding top performers; 3-4% raises (only if you're lucky, and on good years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale back management, too top heavy. Maintain a work-life-balance.

    Pros

    Nice facility, has a gym, and free yoga. The people are nice, but be careful who you befriend

    Cons

    Great place to work if you like to be micromanaged and LOVE employees who stab you in the back, and are hypocritical. HIGH turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so quick to judge, and micromanaging is bad for employee moral. Follow Google's advice. You will retain better employees!

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent paid time off and benefits package. Flexible hours and the ability to work remotely. Training provided and the ability to attend industry trade shows.

    Cons

    I did not approve of the morals and values of the employees at the corporate office in San Diego. There was a lot of questionable practices and inappropriate sexual advances among management. I was constantly having to travel to meet unrealistic deadlines and goals.

    Current Employee - Sales Representative

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

    Pros

    Good culture, great work life balance, portfolio of products, great PTO, immediate management was always very pro sales team- despite ongoing compensation issues, I'd still recommend - Great customer care support teams backing up sales

    Cons

    Mid level management is sluggish to respond to changing market; compensation plans were consistently delivered several months into the fiscal year, and often failed to deliver as promised. Some 'frat' culture, and favoritism, but probably not more than any other company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper managenet should listen to regional managers, who typically have an excellent grasp on issues
