    Former Employee - Principal Software Engineer in San Diego, CA

    I worked at CareFusion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits and nice location in sunny Sun Diego. Most likely stable job in the medical devices industry which is great in the times of bad economy.

    Cons

    Very political. Expect others take credit for your work or be thrown under the bus by incompetent co-workers. Poor software engineering practices - they are pretty much non-existent. Code reviews are done by a committee of 3-4 people who walk in the conference room and never seen your code before. For them it is pretty much a regulatory formality of medical industry to do code reviews and has nothing to do with any type of software engineering. Poor design and implementation of code which is normally just a bunch of spaghetti code.

    There are many contractors at the company which just come and go. Presumably, this practice allows company to save cost but with people also goes knowledge. Very high attrition rate among product and project management employees. I was a witness when people just walked out of the door without giving required two weeks notice or after spending just 2-3 months with the company because they were burned down.

    Current Employee - Field Service Technician in Sacramento, CA

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of benefits. Work from home with the freedom of scheduling your own workday, most of the time. Not too much overtime depending on where you live.

    Cons

    24X7 job. You may get every other weekend off. Short staffed all the time with short sighted middle management. Constantly being told how we should be doing our job by a bunch of people that have never been in the field and have no clue what challenges we face each day.
