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

    Pros

    Good salaries, flexible work schedule, good people in the engineering groups, interesting work (new projects).

    Cons

    Old Boys' management structure favors more who-you-know than what-you-know (empire building is rampant), hourly assembly employees are underqualified (and are a hazard in the parking lot at shift changes), and SINCE BD TOOK OVER, layoffs abound.

    Advice to Management

    If BD corporate new what was REALLY going on, they would put a stop to local management trough-feedings.

    Pros

    Great work - life - balance. Worked with a great group of people which felt like family. Everyone took a lot of pride in what they did as a team.

    Cons

    It was extremely disappointing when CFN decided to outsource to sell to BD. A lot of good people lost their jobs.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (More than a year)

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, free coffee and tea, microwaves, manufacturing is on site. Management asks for employee concerns, they conduct surveys of employee satisfaction. Good customer base.

    Cons

    Management does not do anything about what they hear from employees. They decide how much time it takes to do the job even if they haven't done the work before. They thrash people from project to project and cancel projects all the time along with regular layoffs. All of the senior management resigned within a few months after being purchased by BD. The products are old and all the work is band aids to keep it alive.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize what will make the business healthy, resolve your internal disputes privately and come out united, staff projects with the right people and let them finish their work before pulling them onto something else.

    Pros

    Many great people to work with. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Management is not discreet about who their "favorites" are and you almost have to be a "favorite" to be promoted. Compensation is not commensurate with duties/job description and people are very often given the duties of a senior level position but they are not afforded the tille nor the pay. BD has a Work From Home policy, however CareFusion will not allow it in most departments...unless you are a "favorite".

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for their hard work, not the sunshine because they don't see sunshine that often anyway. You're always telling us how much money the company makes and it's all because of the employees, but the employees are never compensated or given a bonus to prove that you really mean that.

    flexible office hours and working from home.

    Cons

    Employees get promoted per their relationship with manager and not per their performance. No transparency between managers and employees.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career and get job experience. Good pay and decent benefits for the local area.

    Cons

    Management does not care about your work, they only care about numbers and making a profit. They will make every cut possible to save money. Little to no room for individual growth and development.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Especially the temporary workers (they are people too). Also be transparent, don't keep secrets and have open communication.
