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

    Pros

    Benefits were good, including on site gym, awesome cafe, good pay, beautiful facility

    Cons

    Devious local HR, manager plays favorites, director is oblivious, bosses on both sales and marketing sides. Work is like going to high school everyday with "mean girls" running the show.

    Advice to Management

    Bard Care is the "Hotel California:. You can check-in but you can never leave. Promotions to other sections? Forget it. Lateral move request? You're out!

    Pros

    Travel, interaction with hcp, great colleagues, they believe in a work hard play hard culture. Sales appreciates the clinical aspect tremendously.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, too many non tenured in leadership, while advancement is great it comes with a price when those in charge are insecure about those they manage and want employees who only say yes.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about yourselves and focus on the team.

    Pros

    Salary is decent, benefits are good. That is it for the pros, but I need twenty words to fulfill the minimum.

    Cons

    Way way too much work and no process documentation in Supply Chain to train with. Everyday is a new adventure in learning how bad the process' are and how much manual work is done to compensate for it. Forget about having a life out of work, I work every night until 9 or 10 just to barely keep up. They are interviewing for positions in Covington now, they will say what they know you want to hear to suck people in. Be smarter than the rest of us, say no.

    Advice to Management

    It is not always everyone else's fault. You as management are primarily responsible for the current situation you are in. Take responsibility instead of covering your own butt.

    I have been working at Bard Medical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Their PTO/vacation policy for salaried employees is excellent. In my first year, I got 3 weeks paid vacation, and I don't have to use any of it for appointments, sick days, sick kid days, etc. I can even take half-days off without using PTO; they only keep track of full days. Work/life balance is about the only positive thing I can say about them. However, that does go out the window if you're a manager - my bosses typically work 50-60hr weeks, minimum. They never get to use that great vacation policy or see their families.

    Cons

    It often feels like it is straight out of the movie Office Space. Corporate/Division management do not care about you - they specifically refer to people as "resources" or "heads" so that "it's easier when we have to lay people off". It is nearly impossible to actually get work done, due to an onerous approvals process and too many layers of management. Throughout the company, the culture is that people will avoid responding to your emails/calls unless you CC: their boss/colleagues into the conversation. Also be aware they are prone to shutting down manufacturing sites and shipping the jobs across the border, so there isn't much job security.

    I worked at Bard Medical full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    One of the reasons to work at Bard is to get some experience.

    Cons

    A downside for working at Bard in my opinion is the unbalanced opportunities to qualified workers and leadership not following through with confidential complaints. They call or coin complaints hearsay.

    Advice to Management

    In my opinion upper Management needs to respect all employees.

    Pros

    Great health benefits. If you are working under the right manager, it's is a good place to work. The engineers from associates to seniors are very knowledgeable and willing to assist you through any questions.

    Cons

    Office politics are really bad. You have to watch what you say to around certain people. If you think you have a good idea management likes to shun it then present it to you later as if was there idea. Promotions... They like to hire from outside the company for that.

    Advice to Management

    Good managers can make a bad employee good but a bad manager will make a good employee bad
