    Pros

    Benefits were very good; pay was adequate. Most of the co-workers were great people and skilled in their areas of expertise except for managers.

    Cons

    Some departments overworked their staff, causing burn out and frequent employee turnover. Management not responsive to employee needs.

    Pros

    This was a great company during the Alaris years.

    Cons

    Worst company I have ever worked for!
    Continuous downsizing in small numbers so the shareholders and investors are unaware of the company's instability. Firing starts with all the managers followed by the directors, soon entire floors are empty and we are left doing the work of 5 people so no work/life balance as claimed. Mission statement,: Careless Fusion.. use the few remaining and dump the rest. Everyone is treated like a number, even after giving over 10 years to this company, you get layed off without warning or you never know who's next! This is the worst company ever!

    Advice to Management

    Non, they don't care, especially CEO Kieran Gallahue, the Corporate raider!

    Pros

    Excellent client base, wonderful employees to work with,

    Cons

    Unqualified management, unable to make any decisions, only out for themselves at the cost of the company and employee's. No work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your organization, get rid of the dead weight, your best performers and talent are gone now

    Company has become more about being in the right circle, cares more for the buck than the people.

    Pros

    Used to have a culture that valued customer, employee and share holder.

    Cons

    Company does not have a clear vision for company culture, it's most valuable resources (people), or who they really wanna be when they grow up.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond a few key leaders and check the pulse on your people.

    Pros

    Satisfying job since it directly and positively affects people's lives.

    Cons

    Lots of personal agendas and politics going around in every single department, plant, and headquarters.

    There is a lot of empty rethoric at the management level, and leading by example at CF is totally non-existing. For example, a lot of emphasis is given to team work and goal achievement, but in reality projects are delayed or total failures due to the inability of managers to promote the very environment they speak of, but fail to enforce.

    Accountability at the management level is ZERO. The company is only successful because of the lower level employees who truly work hard ( and they are never really recognized by management).

    Promotions are only based upon popularity, how good people are at verbally justifying their jobs, "yes people", and personal agendas. Hard work, job experience/ knowledge, and commitment are ignored by management when it is time for reviews, bonuses, and promotions. Great thing that BD acquired CF, hopefully culture will be changed.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully BD will reorganize the culture from the top down. Parasitic managers and departments (such as "Advanced Engineering" and Quality) need to go.
