I worked at BD full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Generally stable, some very good [intelligent] people, modest/fair salarly. Safe bet

Cons

slow to act, some poor leadership, Tend to rotate Sr. Mgmt through but some of the businesses need longer stewardship...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

talk to customers and do more skip level(s) meetings to actually find out what the heck is going on...

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

    Pros

    Great working relationships with peers, adequate pay and benefits

    Cons

    Reputation of acquisitions and then shutting down plants. Seems to have a RIF every September. Lack of good leadership from the top down. Managers do not help you succeed, would rather berate the associate when they falter. They push how important ethics are, but there are many ethical issues within. Work-life balance leaves something to be desired, but it depends on your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your headcount better during the fiscal year and manage non-performers better so that when you don't make your sales numbers you do not have to do a RIF - ensure you are always were you should be.
