Pros

Bard is really doing some amazing things for patients and healthcare professionals and it is a pleasure working somewhere where the first line of the mission statement is "patient" and not profit.

Cons

If you are in the finance arena, things work differently at Bard; being very good at your job is not necessarily the road to promotion, but politics- who likes you versus who doesn't even when the job is performed well. The biggest con to the company is that information is a secret and management does not share it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your non executive employees better and let people know what is going on within the organization so people can do their jobs

    Pros

    Well established, a large company thats been around 100 years. Products are needed in the industry, and they have a great deal of representation out there for them.

    Cons

    The company doesn't invest enough into R&D to develop new products for the market. When they do they so severely overcharge for them that the customers are turned off by the steep price structure. This makes it significantly harder for the sales professionals and leads to higher than average turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage divisions to work together and cross pollinate contacts. Invest in new products to bring to market and pay your sales people for doing a good job. (set one comp plan for all sales teams so that there aren't animosities by the lower paid ones for doing as good of a job, or even better in many cases, but earning less than their counterparts.
