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

    Pros

    If you like sunny San Diego weather this is one of those companies.
    Heaven for consultants.

    Cons

    We don't feel the presence of HR in this company. The only interaction with HR is workday.
    Performance reviews are done just for name sake. Managers have their own standards and views in rating their employees. No uniform standards across teams in recognizing talent and hardworking. Senior managers do not show any interest in interacting or taking to employees under their managers. No skip level meetings.
    Managers do not encourage full time employees to participate in crucial projects and contribute. In a way the managers do not allow employees to grow in the company. Outside consultants do projects and full time employees slog late hours in fixing the production issues after project go live. No scope for improving skills as there is no training budget always. I see there is no trust among people or teams. We work in a hostile environment. Lot of meaningless documentation and change control procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please talk to every body in your team. Know your team. Take outside help in devising effective review and recognition process.
    Get feedback on you managers from all sides.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, the latest technology at your finger tips, and frequent advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Minimalist training, No Stock options, multiple hiring freezes, and annual travel restrictions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would develop an interactive training program for every business that supports Procedural Solutions. The training is one of the main issues current and former employees have with CareFusion which in my opinion is the reason for slower response time.

    Employees are being treated bad so they quit and the company can outsource

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at CareFusion full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros. the money is decent, but not great.

    Cons

    There is constant pressure and negative enforcement. Employees are constantly being set up for failure by changing work expectations. There are constant threats of write-ups or firing. Management "paces" the floor constantly. Management is creating a hostile working environment. the writing is on the wall: Get rid of the employees without paying severance, and then outsource to other countries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless. Management just cares about their bonus, and not if there are still employees around to manage in a few years.

    Pros

    Nice facilities, good industry and good products

    Cons

    if you want to be micromanaged and treated as a number and not a human being, this is the right place for you. It's all about profit and nobody cares about the well being of the employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation, and success can only happen with good employees and if you don't treat them well all the valuable people will leave and the rest will stay
