    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

    Worst place in San Diego to work!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The founders of the company were very people focused and the products made by this company are life saving devices the. But the new management is very profit focused not people below the C suite focused, and the typical MO is to acquire a company and then move operations to Mexico focused leaving many US employees without a job.

    Cons

    HR management is terrible and out of touch. Multiple departments have gone through almost 100% turnover within the past 2 years including compensation, recruiting and employee relations. If you are in HR this is the last company you want to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership in Human Resources is weak, open your eyes to the problems!

    Former Employee - SAP Consultant in San Diego, CA

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work Environment and Pay was not great but good. Overall I was satisfied with my compensation package. My coworkers were great, helpful and were good. Allowed me to work with a variety of individuals at all levels of the organization. Good business community.

    Cons

    No motivation whatsoever you get from Manager. Manager does not trust her team instead likes contractors. I think encouraging good work is a way to boost the employee's morale. Supportive work environment is essential for an employee to make significant contributions to the company. In my case, unfortunately, that lacked and left me no choice but to quit my job, although I loved the technical aspect of it. Upper Management does not have time to listen to your concerns. Huge employee turnover in this IT team compared to any other IT teams (Total 10 people left under this manager and 4 people in last four months).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great place to work "Except" in IT Operation Team. Advice to management - stop employee turnover in this team.

    Pros

    VP's and above management are very innovative, futuristic and willing to grow the company.

    Cons

    Middle layer management is very poor. They want to criticize others and point out the obstacle, rather try to solve it. They try to show off their credit by criticize junior. Stop to build more leaders to keep job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers performance should determine by taking feedback from employee, not from their weekly summery.

    Pros

    Nice Compensation, PTOs, San Diego weather,

    Cons

    You need to puppet, carry out tasks assigned by managers but not allowed to ask any questions.
    Very arrogant and rule middle management, they pitch themselves expert of everything.
    Very depressing environment.
    Micro Management- You need ti give status/ or 5 people will advising you how to carryout your tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up fire incompetent managers, this place will be much better to work for.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (more than an 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).
