    Pros

    Good benefits, room to move up in the ranks, great balance between work and personal life, friendly and well-connected work environment

    Cons

    Sometimes feels a bit chaotic and disorganized, lacks fitness and/or entertainment areas that other companies with large facilities have to help manage stress (though they do offer to help pay for gym memberships and healthy activities).

    Advice to Management

    Improve structure in certain departments, be a bit more strict towards employees not pulling their weight, improve the facility (RTP, NC site) to better promote good health

    None, they were just doing what they were told.

    IT Mgmt cant make a decision out of fear

    The old BD Culture has given way to Wall Street Mentality
    Outsourcing has destroyed IT

    Advice to Management

    Get fresh IT mgmt. The old GE crew is becoming irrelevant.

    I worked at BD full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Double time on holidays. Decent starting rate.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime is frequent. The production line is constantly congested due to various mechanical failures. A frantic work pace is needed to maintain control. It is always above 90 degrees on the floor. Not enough training to do the job because of the pay for skill system. Upper management has literally no idea what the job entails. Constant threats of losing your job.

    Advice to Management

    Train ALL employees to learn the needed skills to perform the job. Get the AC fixed. Hire some veteran employees of that department to be management. Listen to the concerns of the operators and do something about it. Work with the employees to fix problems instead of sending hostile emails on a regular basis.
