    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 the 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 wage, Good benefits Good PTO. A great sense of achievement on completion of projects with plenty of help (when required) and acknoweledgement from senior management on completion. Despite previous comments I find no issues when working with other departments.

    Cons

    The parking can be a problem but only becouse everyone wants to be as close to the buildings as possible. A little more Parking etiquete would be appreciated by all I am sure.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay was good, not great but good - overall I was satisfied with my compensation package. My coworkers were great, relationships were good. I had a lot of autonomy to do my job, which I like. I got to lead some great projects that allowed me to work with a variety of individuals at all levels of the organization. I was fortunate to be working on a diverse team/dept, although not all parts of the organization are like this. Some of the executives I had a chance to work with are great individuals - funny and caring. The organization also has Employee Resource Groups which is great so you can feel a part of something and meet others outside your direct dept/team - make sure to take advantage of these.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy, although there are brief moments of peace. High pressure position, definitely stressful (especially at fiscal year end). Policies and procedures need to be revamped for greater efficiency and to match industry best practices. I didn't like some of the business decisions made that negatively impacted the employee population (including temp workers). I understand bottom line is important, but people are important too. Constant RIF's. For those that have been with the organization for a while, stop saying "that's just how we do things" since obviously not everything being done is exactly working well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people, not objects. Look at the market, some of the most successful companies are the ones taking care of their employees (at all levels).

    Great company with too many internal "improvement" programs.

    Pros

    Benefits package is first rate, couldn't be better. Stable company with a good and secure product line, especially as our population ages. CareFusion teaches work/life balance to all employees.

    Cons

    Although CareFusion teaches work/life balance, demands are high frequently at the cost of work/life balance. There are so many internal improvements and training classes required, it is sometimes hard to manage your primary job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many "silos" created at CareFusion by people trying to protect their turf.
