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

    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.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Carefusion spun-off the manufacturing division from Cardinal Health, which was primarily a distribution company. This was a good move because the quality systems for manufacturing vs. distribution were not compatible.

    Cons

    Down sizing constantly not very stable. The culture shifted from a growing, merging, forward thinking to a minimizing, cost cutting, "on edge" workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your people. have faith in them and lead them to be successful. Ask the employees where they want to be in 5 years. Invest in them, provide training, and encourage them to grow. AND STOP DOWNSIZING to make the bottom line look good.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time

    Pros

    At least before the BD merger: job security; lots of PTO; honorable values and products that truly help people; ground level teams were pretty strong

    Cons

    Slow moving, random upper management decisions constantly changing the direction of projects, putting them on hold or cancelling them midstream; SW team was always behind, holding up HW releases; very political atmosphere in terms of promotions; lots of quality system overhead preventing real engineering work from happening; if you weren't in management, or Senior Principal or above, bonuses were meager; annual increases match COLA if you were on the high performing end

    Advice to Management

    Constant switches in project direction demonstrate lack of research before starting a project. Make sure all of your teams are well staffed or unburdened by non-engineering overhead. Improve actual opportunities for promotions instead of just playing favorites, putting people into positions they don't really deserve or fulfill.

    Pros

    good learning experience. interesting environment, with

    Cons

    management doesn't monitor employees. Bad employees work here for years, good ones get all the workload and don't get properly compensated. Management doesn't give promotions, but they expect the work of a higher level job.

    Advice to Management

    treasure your good employees, speak to the bad ones about improving. in other words, actually be involved!
