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

    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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and friendliest people I have ever met, work here. Co-workers are generally trying to make the world a safer and healthier place for everyone.

    Company politics are hard to ignore.

    Keep the goal of 'patient safety' in mind, it will lead you in making the right decisions.

    Pros

    They treat their people well. I worked with mainly nice people who cared about each other. Lots of good benefits and support overall.

    Clean house on some of the older managers and establish a new culture of team building and innovation overall.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    CareFusion was a customer-focused company that worked at a fast pace and was quick to make decisions. Had the excitement of a start-up company with the stability of an established company.

    Cons

    Senior management turnover led to occasional loss of direction. It was a very externally-focused company with not much focus on its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Now that the company is sold, BD Corporation should try to adopt the best of CareFusion's culture - it's agility and quick decision making.

    Pros

    Good Pay. Advancement opportunities are available. Positive work environment. Great collaborative effort when deadlines need to be met.

    Cons

    There are silos between the product segments. Occasional overtime/weekend work is needed.

    Advice to Management

    I left before the purchase by BD, I am not sure if the culture has shifted, but the CFN I remember was a joy to come in and work hard for..and I can't say that about any other place I have worked at in the past.

    Due to the size of the company management is not aware of contributions at an individual level.
