    I worked at BD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great company. After acquiring Carefusion, they laid off many people, and outsourced many jobs to offshore. This is in IT department. May not apply to other departments.

    Cons

    Bad Management, Communicatio Gap.

    Advice to Management

    I understand you're trying to save money, but you're compromising the quality.

  6. "S*xist comments, back talking, Jealousy, Gossip... too much."

    I worked at BD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Building was nice.
    -Easy job if you can follow the disciplines of the business requirements- it's not rocket science. There are some nice people here as well.

    Cons

    -Didn't like how I was expected to be so nice to the manager / make him feel like he was some king. If I didn't, he would give me the silent treatment.. where he didn't talk to me unless he had to.. and when he did he'd talked down to me. Being a female, this was hard for me.

    Advice to Management

    -Don't participate in s*xist comments: male manager smiled at all the s*xist comments, even participated and I as a third person even felt out of place at just hearing this.
    -Dont take lunch for 2hrs: Manager/Team Lead took 1.5-2hr lunches at times.
    -Don't say negative things about the director (your manager)
    -Don't talk so loud in an office setting- especially when it's unnecessary comments about things like starwars.And, "This Is My Process, and this is how I want it done, haha I'm gonna be here a long time, incumbency is nice". - while talking to IT department.
    -Please be respectful of others and listen to both sides before reacting, no matter what, always said you're all my minions... want a job
    -Don't gossip- I found out management was saying things because the person they gossiped to called me at work to as me! When he traveled he'd call and tell us all he's got eyes there even tho he's not there.
    -This same manager loved the alcohol during our town hall meetings.

    Had I reacted quickly enough I could have filed for something, but the intimidation threw me off. I'm stronger now.

    Pros

    Great culture and work/life balance. Senior leadership truly cares about their associates and their progression.

    Cons

    Can't really find any. Unfortunately I did have to leave the company for personal reasons but I would recommend this company to anyone!

    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

    Good work, always nice to resolve issue with customers

    Lack of support from Management, was just a smoke screen to move jobs out of state.

    None, they were just doing what they were told.
