Achieve more, grow more, be more

As an ambitious, entrepreneurial and growing business, Bard is the natural home for driven, ethical and accountable people who want to get noticed, make things happen and enjoy the rewards they truly deserve. Our people are independent and critical thinkers who thrive on the challenge of delivering sustainable growth and live by our values. At Bard, your commitment and hunger for results will enable you to achieve more, grow more and be more.

As a medical products company with a strong technological heritage, our worldwide employment opportunities include scientific, professional, technical, and managerial positions, as well as a wide range of marketing, operations, manufacturing, data processing, and support functions.

It has been and will continue to be a fundamental policy of C. R. Bard, Inc. not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, or status as a recently separated veteran, armed forces service medal veteran, disabled veteran or active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran with respect to recruitment, hiring, training, promotion and other terms and conditions of employment. In addition, the Company complies with local laws in each jurisdiction in which it maintains facilities.

Bard is a M/F, Disabled and Vet EEO/AA Employer.

As we recruit and develop employees, Bard does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, or status as a recently separated veteran, armed forces service medal veteran, disabled veteran or active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran. We expect compliance with local laws wherever we operate around the world.

As of year-end 2014, our approximately 14,000 employees:

  • Reside in 33 countries
  • Are approximately 45% male / 55% female
  • Are increasingly located outside the United States, with 65% international in 2014 versus 59% in 2010.

We are not just diverse, but inclusive. We believe inclusion is a catalyst for product leadership, global growth and talent development. We are committed to fostering an inclusive culture where all talent can work together across functional and geographic boundaries, share diverse perspectives and capabilities, and deliver superior outcomes for our business, our shareholders, our customers and the patients we serve.

In 2015, Bard launched a Global Inclusion Leadership Council comprised of diverse, respected and influential leaders representing each of Bard’s major functions, geographies and businesses. The Council will not only raise awareness of inclusion across Bard, but will be responsible for reviewing and sharing great ideas and partnering with their organization’s leadership teams to build, execute and measure inclusion plans.

There are already a number of active programs and initiatives across Bard that advance inclusion:

  • Bard Access Systems in Salt Lake City, Utah, has created a Women’s Leadership Forum that identifies high-potential talent in the organization and connects them with businesswomen in the community who serve as mentors.
  • Bard Medical Division in Covington, Georgia, is developing the division’s next generation of technical leaders while developing women for future leadership roles through the Climbers Program. This two-year multi-disciplinary rotational program gives recent graduates full-time experience in the functional areas of Quality Assurance, R&D, Operations and either Regulatory Affairs or Marketing. When the rotations are complete, the program slots graduates into areas that balance their interests and Bard’s business needs.
  • Bard Canada partners with ACCES Employment to give jobs to skilled immigrants and others who face barriers to employment in the Canadian job market. This partnership provides these employees opportunities to build and enhance the skills needed by Bard and other Canadian employers. Bard Canada has also partnered with several colleges and universities to provide co-op experiences for students, several of whom have been hired by Bard after obtaining their degrees.

Even in an industry built on improving – and even saving – lives, Bard stands out in the medical device industry for our commitment to our core values of Quality, Integrity, Service and Innovation.

With approximately 15,000 employees worldwide, we are geographically diverse. Our global headquarters is located in New Jersey’s biotech and pharmaceutical corridor, a short commute from New York City. Our U.S. divisions are headquartered in or around major metro areas such as Atlanta, Phoenix, Providence and Salt Lake City, and we have a strong presence in over 30 other countries, from Brazil to Malaysia, from Germany to Australia.

We are a good corporate citizen, and our employees are active and responsible members of the communities in which they live and work.

We play to win. We set challenging and aggressive goals that provide focus, and we value results above all.

We will foster your creativity and give you every opportunity to grow and thrive. Not everyone is cut out for the ever-evolving healthcare market. But those who are up to the challenge can make a real difference at Bard – and ultimately, have an impact on the lives of people around the world.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bard.


    Overall very easy. They only asked behaviorals towards skillsets that you would need on the job. Make sure you know a little background on regulatory affairs in regards to the job requirements.
