    I have been working at B. Braun Melsungen for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall I think this is a good company to work for. I think they offer a lot of perks and incentives and treat their employees with care. They are also doing well right now and are growing.

    Cons

    This is a very conservative company, so they are really slow to make changes/improvements and are not always the most efficient.

    I have been working at B. Braun Melsungen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits. Gym reimbursement, 10-15 days vacation and 6days sick. They vacation days grow the longer you are with company. Cheap cafeteria.

    Cons

    Salary rules suck. Benefits are great but you have to pay bills. There is a profit share. Very, very strict about requirements on education, if you don't have bachelors they will not allow you to be a manager or rep regardless of your experience and skills.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your good employees, if you start seeing people leaving maybe it is time to look at yourselves.

    Cons

    Very old technology in manufacturing , yet wanted to stay competitive globally in state of the art 21 century technology last 4 years the company culture struggling due to implementation of lean culture, No SMART vision. Turnover and layoff were high, majority of talented dedicated professional from Engineering, manufacturing, and Quality department left or were let go. FDA visit and its observations in 2013 was... a big factor in company loosing its peaceful environment.

    Advice to Management

    COO of the company should have listened to senior management, not just hear want to hear.Senior managers should be honest to CEO and COO of the company and Board of and do not overpromise the impossible. Lean is a journey and not the destination and there is no shortcut in it.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at B. Braun Melsungen

    Pros

    This prestigious company allows you to to pursue your interests while developing their own products. The pay is excellent and you feel like a team member right away. The term "welcome aboard" is used by everyone when you first join and for good reason. B. Braun manages a tight ship.

    Cons

    Its easy to get lost in the jumble of employees who work here. Depending on who your manager is you can be treated well or badly with no chances of getting transferred. Upper management makes dumb product decisions and continues implementing them even if they know its bad business.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more subordinate feedback in meetings.
