      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at B. Braun Medical

      Pros

      401k and many paid holidays Work schedule flexibility depending on who you are

      Cons

      Lower pay than industry standards Management turns a blind eye to slackers Rules apply one day the next they don’t Inconsistent policies Parking is a nightmare

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees or better yet have a few one on ones and ask outright what could be improved. So much room for improvement. Outdated mentality. Management does the work less the managing part. You could work like crazy or not work at all and everyone gets the same raise. Which is minimal at best. Most people at corporate are pretty dissatisfied. Pay attention to your employees. Treat Them fairly and...

      Cons

      poor management no decision making masking problems instead of getting to the root cause no one to turn to when there is a problem. Management doesn't agree with each other. Everyone has their own agenda

      I have been working at B. Braun Medical full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Reliable work , good health insurance, plenty of OT, diverse work responsibilities , generous paid time off

      Cons

      Supervisors have an opinion that contradict one another at times, work rules can change from week to week, work load can get really high

      Advice to Management

      Be more consistent in policies implemented. 2 different supervisors shouldnt have different requirements for job completion. pay higher shift differential for night shift to lower turnover. overall good company

          I worked at B. Braun Medical full-time for more than 8 years

          Pros

          Free cheap coffee, discount tickets, access to Camp SWilly.

          Cons

          German Board pushing 2020 with no regard to compliance gaps, 11 FDA 483 and a dozen Health Canada observations plus a warning letter and the VP/GM states to focus on meeting "absolute minimal complaince requirements".

          Advice to Management

          Quit hiring only ex-Teva Quality Employees, its dividing your Quality group. The more than half-dozen Remediation, QA, QE and QC people you have lost in the last 120 days is just the start.

          I have been working at B. Braun Medical full-time for more than 3 years

          Pros

          Good benefits. Good amount of paid vacation. Convenient location for most local employees

          Cons

          Underpaid compared to industry standards, no true accountability for missed timelines or delayed projects, “old school” management mentality, too conservative/traditional, inefficient employees rarely get fired which leads to apathetic employees who don’t do their jobs

          Advice to Management

          Pay appropraitely, replace people who are not effectively doing their role

          I have been working at B. Braun Medical (Less than a year)

          Pros

          People are generally kind and willing to help I have heard from many that the job security is good The have good benefits for the area, $300 gym reimbursement, dental insurance, health insurance, 401k, $5,250 tuition reimbursement

          Cons

          A lot of red tape "Thats how we've always done it" mentality Not a lot of employees <30

          Advice to Management

          Acknowledge that there in differences in generations, and update some benefits to keep up with the country's work culture. Many times they ask some employees how they could attract younger talent, but comeback with "thats not how we do things". If you want to attract younger talent, you have to give in on trivial things that arent important to the bottom line.

          I worked at B. Braun Medical full-time

          Pros

          It's a small company, that is like a family.

          Cons

          When there is a problem, there is no one to go to. They don't want to hear it. They just want to hear about the good things. They don't investigate the issue properly.

          Advice to Management

          Investigate a situation properly by reviewing with all sides involved and then set up a plan that will work for everyone involved.
