    "So Far So Good"

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at BD full-time

      Pros

      The organization I am in was recently acquired by BD. So far it has been the most transparent integration I've been associated with. Recent Corporate management changes indicate they are living up to their claimed goal of assessing best practices between the legacy organizations and incorporating those that position the organization for the greatest growth.

      Cons

      Too much time is spent, by too many people, in meetings. Sooner or later this will have a negative impact on our productivity.

      Advice to Management

      As the organization continues to grow, enable senior management to push more "low to moderate risk" decision making authority down to the appropriate subject matter expert levels.

    • "Very friendly work environment."

        The people are very welcoming and eager to assist.

            I worked at BD full-time for more than 9 years

            Pros

            company has good benefits and compensation.

            Cons

            customer focus and leadership declined over the years. Company focused on numbers and paperwork over the customer in the last 3 to 5 years I was there. Leadership/management support declined as well. Company changed hands multiple times as did leadership to often.

            Advice to Management

            Need to get back to basics i.e. territories rather than national and customer service focus like what made this company great in the beginning.
