    Pros

    Benefits, some customers, company car (if job permits it), pay isn't bad (could be better) for the amount of hours worked

    Cons

    Management, no work life balance, over working the worker bee, having you work a position and not get paid for it

    Advice to Management

    You really need to look at the big picture. People are dropping like flies, lots of unnecessary lay offs which is putting your knowledge base at risk

    I worked at CareFusion full-time

    Pros

    People at the working level are great with good intentions

    Cons

    Micromanagement, inefficient and extremely wasteful processes pushed on workers to protect inexperienced mgmt egos, rude managers that don't help but make things more complicated, training demands that are not relevant to job, absolutely no work life balance, protected inexperienced cliques in the office- no real team environment, very very high turnover- people leave frequently. The office is just over their heads with extremely poor leadership ....it's unfortunate. Very demanding n political clients

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to change n people that come in with great ideas. Leave egos at the door. Respect your people at all levels more. Kill the dog and pony shows put on for clients n employees- they see straight through it. Stop throwing your own worker bees under the bus. Hire more experienced management with people skills. Kill excessive and worthless meetings. Listen to people with the experience that you need. Align work with leadership promises (stop abusing commitments n good ideas just bc they were not initiated by you), employee strengths and what the employee is interested in. If leafership is going to be cheap n underresource projects, he needs to adjust expectations -kill the smoke n mirrors routine

    Pros

    Relaxed environment on the production floor. Met a lot of great people and made some friends. Some overtime offered when it gets busy.

    Cons

    Never got a pay raise, voice of people on the production floor is not heard, pay is extremely low for amount of units we built.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the people on the bottom floor as they are the ones who make the product and really bring in the money for the company.

    Pros

    Worked here for over 10 years. I enjoyed working for them. Very diverse group of professionals. Flexible and pleasant work environment. Most people are very nice and professional.

    Cons

    Downsizing constantly, not very stable for the QA department

    Outsourcing the critical works will have big problems in the features, especially for Medical Device Class (II or higher) FDA-Regulated products.
