    I worked at CareFusion as an intern

    Pros

    Growth opportunities Emphasis on values Employee diversity Inclusive environment Lots of small work environment perks

    Cons

    Slightly disorganized because of re-structuring Some outdated systems Need better training - training package was not applicable to the job

    Advice to Management

    Provide database training and excel skills to employees. Senior employees are not always familiar with this skill set, and rely on younger employees.

    Pros

    There is always plenty of projects in both the US and outside of the US. Benefits and compensation were good with opportunity for equity.

    Cons

    Immature management; strange decisions and behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully things will change with BD.

    Pros

    Great staff! Great communication. Enjoyed coming to work.

    Cons

    Couldn't be there permanently. I'm sure I will find an opening.

    Hope to see you soon. Maybe a spot will open up for me.

    Pros

    Important products contribute to improving healthcare, diverse portfolio of technology, one of largest San Diego employers. Some enlightened managers (just not enough of them).

    Cons

    Ancient & miserable systems for development projects makes very hard to get product out. Gaping divide between management with professional staff leads to some nasty politics & nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office. Grow the market, stop milking your customers.

    Pros

    Good Benefits Comparable pay Generous time off

    Cons

    As outlined in other reviews, CareFusion suffered from a lack of defined Culture. I believe that the announcement that BD had acquired CareFusion has provided a sense of hope. Lack of accountability Difficult to work within organization and even within department ("Its not my job" - attitude) Never any sense of job security ZERO work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    None: They are all gone

    Pros

    Great people. Work-life balance. Great benefits. Great culture (prior to merger).

    Cons

    Hard to advance. No one is really given any answers with the new merger, everything is up in the air.

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice and smart. They are in the minority.

    Cons

    Negative culture is pervasive throughout the company. Big egos and big tempers.

    Advice to Management

    You'll continue to repel good candidates and lose existing talent by neglecting the culture. CareFusion is one of the least professional companies I've worked at.
