    I have been working at CareFusion as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good group of engineers to work with. Collaborative and supportive, relaxed, productive work environment. Lots of interesting products to work on. Every aspect of development located in one area so you are able to work with everyone locally involved in product development.

    Cons

    Could manage projects better and more effectively. Try to complete multiple products at the same time so competing demands aren't coordinated as well as they could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on better coordination of product development and improve efficiency with realistic product introduction timelines.

    Pros

    Good Work life balance. (Depends on your manager though. ..some teams are happy and some are suffering)
    Good Benefits - meets industry standards

    Cons

    Lots of cost and budget cuts. That has downward impact on what and how much resources are available
    Culture has shifted from value creation to CYA and Back stabbing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back the culture that previous management had created

    Former Employee - Finance in San Diego, CA

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are first rate. The wages and benefits are average for San Diego, the location is great, and the products and services are best in market, and "CareFusion" looks great on a resume.

    Cons

    As a spinoff from Cardinal Health in 2009, CareFusion is still trying to figure much of itself out.
    Add staff, cut staff, add staff, cut staff...
    No stock purchase program. No annual revenue share. And the 2% subjective employee bonus and 401k match are fairly pitiful.
    New product release timing is more important than it actually working as intended.
    Politically, favoritism is rampant. The saturation of Director level + above (and even at the manager level) having been placed in their position owing more to relationship than skillset is pretty high.
    Watching good employees leave in droves, or be cut in a RIF because they were on the wrong side of the political fence, is something that should be considered before you apply.
    Very little trust between employee and manager. "Open and honest 2-way communication" is purely lip service.
    If you are constantly adaptive within the ongoing change management, and know how to tell people what they want to hear, and cover your rear well, you will do fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful in your pursuit of doing more with less.
    Go spend a week at the Illumina campus, and do likewise.

    Pros

    Non-management employees are usually genuine regarding their concern about the customer and the products they produce. They are hard workers that are easy to work with regarding any type of issue.Non-management employees are usually genuine regarding their concern about the customer and the products they produce. They are hard workers that are easy to work with regarding any type of issue.

    Cons

    Management preaches ethics and code of conduct but, fails to follow them. The lower level employees are always to blame.

    Management is not engaged with staffing and product issues.

    The HR department very seldom sides with the lower level employee. Regardless of the evidence to support the employees claim.

    Favoritism runs repent.

    Out date systems too quickly and easily identify issues regarding products.

    This is just a few things. There are really too many to list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR
    Start supporting the lower level employees and hold all levels of management accountable.

    Management
    Practice what you preach.
    Listen to your employees.
    Start doing the right thing for your customers, employees and share holder.

    Pros

    Generous vacation package.
    Nice industry - working with clinical workers is an honor for me.

    Cons

    Utterly chaotic environment. Extremely high turnover. Too many managers managing roles they don't have the knowledge, skills, or aptitude to manage. Too many promotions based purely on personality. Skills do not earn promotions. Extremely political environment. Lot's of BS going around and the managers all seem to have forgotten how to spot it. People who make empty promises and deliver nothing get promoted as long as they know the right people. Those who actually produce are often forgotten and receive no recognition.

    All the new (post Cardinal Health) senior management is overly motivated by money and nothing else. All the people who actually cared about anything and had any depth to their experience have been replaced by fast talking MBAs with salesman personalities. These guys could really care less about the state of things they manage. They're just thinking about their next bonus and many of them don't last long at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking for jobs. BD is probably not as stupid and gullible as the CF board of directors.
