    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

    I have had the opportunity with a great management team at all levels.They were all very supportive and genuinely cares about their staff.

    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.

    "CareFusion was a great place to work."

    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.

    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 people, good benefits and compensation is fair. Company is one of the biggest employers in San Diego. Overall has been a great place to build a career.

    Cons

    BD acquisition is causing a lot of talent to leave; culture is just not the same. Opportunities for "back office" functions are very limited. Not much room for advancement
