Strategic minds have large opportunity to impact change but consensus culture delays and can be frustrating.

Pros

Strong commitment to improving people's health permeates organization and motivates employee efforts, organization is committed to growth, people are friendly, collaborative, and loyal to BD.

Cons

Consensus driven organization delays change, brings slow pace, and prevents action - even if strategically clear.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower decision-making at lower levels. Some programs delayed by senior leaders' schedule rather than strategy not being developed.

    Pros

    Company strives to be recognized as a good corporate citizen.

    Cons

    Engineering legacy governed by the philosophy, "if we build it, they will come." Minimal unique and novel product development from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance reviews should go UP as well as DOWN the chain of command.

    Pros

    good facilities .. crafetaria .. coffee shop .. .parking facilities...........

    Cons

    terrible terrible environment.. same old school mentality .. in the group ..Most of manager and Sr Analyst have no idea about how IT works.. and what should be done.. poor and in-effecient processes. .poor management poor interaction between groups .. employees are with the company for 15+ years because their old school friend is protecting them, with lots of favorisms.. ..and high salary.. lots of screwing around with new employees who just join the group.. Sr Analysts and Managers are like Walmart and Kmart managers ... no clue ..just saving his or her job by throwing work at their direct reports ...without any considerations .. my experience with Global Security management group was terrible at BD.. ...New employees (within age group 40-45) are not welcomed....in short..especially from other minority groups..Never trust Sr Analyst or Managers at BD .. since their statement changes every hour....not giving good direction or guidance..What a SHAME...!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake UP ....get rid of old school boys whose skills are out dated and living in comfort zone for long time. ( 15+) years .. stop that old school mentality..and narrow minded games....It is 21st century .. now.. not 1950's or 60 's...
