    Pros

    Cool to learn the detail production of a life saving device. Not a difficult job as long as you were trained properly.

    Cons

    Poor training. A fantastic system is put in place but neglected. Not sure why. Company must lose so much money due to this inadequacy. Perhaps it was due to the particular team I was placed on. There was no supervision. The manager was quite good but unfortunately not there to constantly oversee.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to use the system of checks...i.e. The worksheet that checks off all the components as to if a new employee truly knows the steps of each procedure. A test should be given on each sequence. Do not take the word of a shift supervisor who may be extremely young and inexperienced.

    Pros

    Just changed vacation policy to an automatic 3 weeks for salary employees. Culture is starting to shift in a very positive direction.

    Cons

    Still below industry standard pay, but 3 weeks of vacation closes that gap.

    Advice to Management

    More employee training

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

    Pros

    Great employee relations! Constantly having team meetings and group activities. Nice building with central location next to downtown and freeway. A growing company with a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Very loose training was not enough to give me the confidence to do what I was hired to do. Communication breakdown between departments cause trouble. No visible career path to excel or steps to take to become a permanent employee

    Advice to Management

    Do not invite temporary employees to meetings about bonuses and time off that do not apply to them - kind of offensive.
