    I have been working at Bard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been fortunate to have good managers. My observations are that leadership practices and promotes the highest ethical standards. The company is fiscally conservative, and has fared well in the market. Great healthcare benefits, 401k seems fairly standard, ESPP, and stock option plan.

    Cons

    Bard is a growing company that has not completely worked out process efficiencies. There is a lot of process overlap between business units, which can be frustrating for customers and for employees. But, I imagine this is not unlike similar companies.

    Advice to Management

    The finance dept has a good model for rotating talent among different business units and geographies. It provides valuable experience and insight for the employees involved, and ultimately is good for the business. Other functional areas could benefit from such a paradigm. At least, for those who are willing to move.

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

    Pros

    Great products, I learned a great deal that undoubtedly helped carry me further in my career

    Cons

    The division I worked for (Lutonix) had very poor leadership, resulting in very high turnover and little faith from employees that management were "doing the right thing". It was not an environment where people wanted to come to work every day.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Be leaders. Culture DOES matter. Have respect for one another and for the people that work so hard for you.
