Pros

Family owned company that cares about their employees. B. Braun invested in their manufacturing facilities and the training of their employees in the US all through the recession. The company avoided general layoffs, gave out salary increases, did not cut benefits (even added free fitness center benefit) and paid bonuses to all levels of employees all during this long downturn. Generally, management is credible.

Cons

At times, change comes a bit slower than other largely public companies. At times this is a bit frustrating, however, a steady as she goes approach offers stability,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to invest in both our manufacturing facilities to offer good paying jobs with very good benefits and also invest in the training of employees. Continue to be accessible to employees. The Iron Pigs box is a great way for us to interact with management, please renew the box.
