I have been working at BD full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

BD has great company values. They are a Medical Manufacturing company whose moto is "Helping People live Healthy Lives".
Lots of chances to learn all about SAP not only in IT but throughout the company.

Cons

IT is a support organization. This is true of many companies, however its just important to understand that distinction.
This is also a highly regulated company because its in Medical so it takes a longer time to get things done.

    I worked at BD

    Pros

    Good company, generally ethical and fair; tough and usually successful competitor in the medical device market. One of the now dwindling group of companies that still have a pension plan in addition to a 401K.

    Cons

    Like so many older American firms it is becoming more and more difficult to turn a profit in the states, so success from plants overseas often results in production expansion and growth but not in the US operations. The company is large and diversified so raises are pretty consistent but usually just keep up with inflation and such.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The more I knew about the "big picture" the easier it was for me to prioritize my individual contribution to support it (obviously, sometimes I felt in the dark on this and it became disconcerting at times).
