    I have been working at BD full-time (Less than a year)


    I joined BD less than a year ago and I have been impressed by the caliber of associates I get to work with.
    BD has established HR processes that ensure performance reviews, raises and bonuses happen.
    Frequent one-on-one between associate and manager occur and is encouraged.
    There are frequent training and continuous education opportunities (at least once a month).
    All departments that I have worked with want to help and make sure overall goal is met.
    There is flexibility to work from home.
    Management culture is transparent and information is quickly distributed via open townhalls.


    BD is pretty big and therefore, it may take time to get things done
