I worked at BD full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great Atmosphere, culture, and organization Excellent People that are intriguing and intellectual. Excellent work/life balance

Cons

Below average salaries. Limited advancement. Vertical structure with very little freedom. Very "corporate" in the sense of control over employees with little decision making abilities. Most go through corporate ranks for everything.

    I have been working at BD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice campus, decent benefits, competitive pay, socially conscious company

    Cons

    -Still trying to push a false image of a company with worklife balance, when that ended about 10 years ago -Responding to passive aggresive emails is 85% of your job. It is a companywide obsession. The rest of the time is weeding through archaic computer systems and file cabinets and attending unproductive meetings. -A culture that is focused on "knowledge is power". This place should have a special episode of Hoarders dedicated to it. You find out people are stashing valuable historical data on their hard drives so that they will always be the "go to person", while moaning how overworked they are and they so desperately want help.

    Advice to Management

    Sadly, this is not the place for mid-level career professionals to hang their hats. While management is aware they need to leap into the 21st century and bring in saavy professionals to transform the company, they are unable to retain these people due to the "lifers" that chase them out. Management is too busy managing up, so there is little support (or protection) for new hires to act as the change agents that they swear up and down they want to have. So new hires either assimilate and lose the skills that got them the job in the first place or they simply leave after a year. Out in the open market, when someone sees a one year stay at BD on a resume, there is always a "say no more" wave.
