    I worked at CareFusion full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    a lot of freedom. ..but LOTS of OT if you want it.

    Cons

    upper mgmt. has no clue. I have never seen a company that does re-orgs EVERY year since they spun off of Cardinal about 5 years ago. also usually layoffs every year.
    NO hands on training other than when you first start. any changes or product knowledge and field techs are expected to learn on their own. which means all techs have different knowledge level of new or changing products.
    if you call tech support for help its a crap shoot as to experience level of person you get to help. very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make a plan and stick to it.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits in terms of salary, PTO were excellent;
    Medical, Dental, Vision good;
    Intelligent and caring co-workers and teammates

    Cons

    Needed to beg for additional training on a yearly basis;
    Project priorities changed on an almost daily basis;
    Inadequate software test, technical writing, requirements resources;
    Continual micro and macro re-alignment based on stockholder perceptions (focus on short term gains not on long term goals)
    Low employee morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that employees are the most important asset to achieve long term goals therefore keeping true to cultural & company values is key to CareFusion's long term success.

    Pros

    Good benefits, day-to-day work culture is trending up (some of the improvements put in place earlier are coming to fruition)

    Cons

    Management team is weak, mostly due to reporting structure being in a constant state of flux. There are reorgs for reorgs, and the company can't seem to find a hierarchy it likes. Senior management seem to prefer their direct reports to be spineless yes-people.

    Pros

    Great products, life-saving products to believe in, a company where you can really help people and be proud of the work you are doing

    Cons

    Management makes bad choices, IT dept was less than stellar

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have a good thing going, like a crack team, don't dissolve their entire office just because it's not in the ideal location. That hurt your company and the people you laid off for no reason.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people are great. Many people in my department have been working together for 5+ years, and the continuity makes the job enjoyable and streamlines getting things done.

    Cons

    With a relatively flat organization, it's difficult to advance, and management doesn't seem interested in creating new or different types of roles to take advantage of the skills of high performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on people development. It costs a lot more to train new employees than to tailor opportunities for current employees.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time

    Pros

    Incredibly smart and fun co-workers; a great group of individuals to learn from and develop with. Piles of work with a lean staff has lead to a lot of autonamy. You often have the ability to take on big projects and make changes without much push-back from senior management.

    Cons

    Strategy is a bit lacking in many of the business units. Overall company direction is fairly definied, but the goals and next steps within the businesses are often a challenge to identify. This makes work incredibly challenging as there is no clear and consistent 'this is why we're here, and this is what we want to accomplish.' In turn, this results in a set of motivated, smart, hungry associates who aren't necessarily excited about the job they're doing and the reason they're doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help the business units define achievable, numeric, and defined strategies. This will absolutely result in employee retention and satisfaction.
