    I worked at CareFusion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, great people, Great location and sustainable product. Even better if you network with the shot callers and tenured managers.

    Cons

    Too many inner circles. Upper management only promote like minded people. Do not give chance to other hard working employees. Most managers are non-technical and spend time delegating and creating tasks due to lack of understanding. Managers spend more time focusing on themselves than building up employees and rarely define a career path.

    Advice to Management

    Too much favoritism, and backdoor politics.

    Pros

    Carefusion was an amazing company to work for. The executives were great, cared about their employees and the impact our products had on patients. After BD acquired CFN, the CFN executives FOUGHT to ensure the employees received their promised company bonus, after BD went back on that agreement.

    Cons

    Everything BD. Company culture and the people that took over are less than to be desired. See explanation in the Pros section about BD, this shows how little they care about their employees.

    Well funded company with some talented people to work with. Fast paced engineering environment which I thrived on. Flexible working hours.

    The company encourages great moral and involvement. The company is also very involved in community volunteering and wellness programs.

    Cons

    I believe that CareFusion has always strived to meet the set company goals and at the same time take care of their employees. I have nothing negative to say about the company.

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

    Pros

    Great team in the implementation areas - analysts, engineers, project managers. Will do anything necessary to make sure the customer is satisfied. Salary is competitive.

    Cons

    2+ years ago the senior leadership was replaced and all but a few were former GE Healthcare people. They had no respect for the implementation team. They eliminated all the direct managers for the implementation team and made them reapply just to get rid of a few employees. This, along with the continued disrespect of most of the people on this team, caused the morale to plummet and that is where it stays. Stay away from this company and more specifically the implementation group. They don't have a good product anymore and are trying to fit a circle into a square peg. Customers are very upset and walking away. They introduced something that was only 1/2 baked and expected the implementation team to manage this, without any help from leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you release a fully baked product instead of trying to make it work in the field. This was the way CFN used to do business years ago and we got away from it, but it seems as if revenue is the bottom line and nothing else matters. This used to be a great place to work. No more.

    Pros

    For six years CareFusion was an exciting, challenging and rewarding company to work for. I was surrounded by talented, motivated and dedicated folks who were all working hard to build something special after our spin-off from Cardinal Health.

    Cons

    Tragically, CareFusion was acquired by Becton Dickinson last year and the spark was extinguished as BD imposed its ponderous and stodgy bureaucracy and risk averse approach on what had been a dynamic and exciting place to build a career. The exodus of the very talent that built CareFusion has been painful to watch.
