    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Self managed teams could take this organization forward but are inhibited by managements tunnel fuel of how critical business operation should function.

    I worked at BD full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lot's of good people (but lots of drones too)
    Beautiful campus

    Cons

    The IT group is there for you to serve them. No customer service what-so-ever. They hand you applications to do your job and they don't work or are ridiculous to use. Help Desk has been outsourced to India and is now a joke. Getting IT to do something is harder than getting things done in Washington DC.
    Overhead to move projects forward is a killer. Too many blockers who are rewarded for their intransigence.
    It is a culture of sheep. Keep your head low and don't make waves. Even though you want to do the right thing, they don't want any waves made, even if the project suffers.
    Lay-offs every September.
    More and more H1B visas being hired and less Americans. They like to celebrate 'diversity' there.
    Management refuses to take risks on NPD.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of dead wood and support those who want to make things work. Stop laying off all your employees and then hiring or outsourcing someone who works at half the salary with no idea what they are doing.
