I have been working at BD full-time

Pros

Most employees are nice to work with. Weight room available (extra fee), cafeteria with fairly decent food (subsidized, average cost about $6.50 per meal w/o drink), no smoking on premises.

Cons

One of the company values is "doing what is right," but of course it doesn't necessarily apply if it means slowing down production, or when it comes to standing up against internal politics. The decor in the original building (there are three total) is extremely outdated and there hasn't been much effort to modernize it, just occasional replacement of old stuff with the same style. Interior of original building can get quite noisy at times, depending on where you sit. All the money went into design of the two newer buildings.

Advice to Management

Update the original building. Decor is so old it's embarrassing.

    I worked at BD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My dad has worked at this company for over 15 years and I interned summer of 2010. Long story short, I've known this company all my life. The company not only has a beautiful campus but the people that work there make it a great experience. The sheer fact that people stay there for over 25 years speaks volumes. They promote innovation and growth and really foster your career. Also, it is great that the company is making a difference by innovating in the medical supplies industry.

    Cons

    Marketing Department could be more developed. It is difficult since the company has a huge push strategy, selling to hospitals and not as much DTC.
