    Pros

    Nice 401K. Good number of PTO days to start. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    The work environment at this company is toxic. Everyone is worried about layoffs that are discretely being executed. All managers in the department have their own agendas. The manager of program managers preaches Agile but doesn't have the slightest clue on how to make it work in an FDA-regulated environment. None of the software program managers have ever written a single line of code before in their lives; yet they strut around like their gifts from God. If you know someone at the company in the management level, you'll get promoted or hired automatically; regardless of how poor and obsolete your skills are. Be sure to buy a nice set of knee pads if you want to move up at CareFusion. This is nepotism and cronyism at its finest!

    Pros

    Most of the management and Executive staff are smart and effective. They support quick and creative thinking. Company has a great focus on developing employees.

    Cons

    As of July 2012, the company is toxic, constant lay offs they call Process Improvements and "right sizeing the business". We are told no "lay offs" yet they continue.
    As a result, departments and employees are keeping knowledge close to themselves. They are making processes more complicated in order to prove their value. and LESS business is getting done.

    Advice to Management

    Right Size the business in one fell swoop, and let us get back to the business of DOING business. Its nearly imposable to work in an environment where every day you wonder "will it be today". Makes it nerve wracking and very hard to present the company in a positive light to our customers.
