    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.

    After the spinoff we had a great group of creative, collaborative, and talented people.

    Once the company was acquired, creativity was squelched and it became a very competitive environment.

    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

    Great People. Helpful and competent.

    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

    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.
