    I worked at BD full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    It offers a great place to learn the intricaces and complexities of business for a Fortune 500 company. The company has high ethical standards and nearly all the people I interacted with were of high moral character.

    Cons

    There is a great emphasis on continuous learning including coaching employees, change management, developing leaders, effective communication, etc. However, its management rarely follows its own training. It has often been described as a good, solid, slow moving company. Although it wants to be an innovative company, it has made a lot of poor decisions over the past decade and is desperately trying to right the ship without actually admitting its mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach: "Face the brutal facts."

    I have been working at BD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    BD has great company values. They are a Medical Manufacturing company whose moto is "Helping People live Healthy Lives".
    Lots of chances to learn all about SAP not only in IT but throughout the company.

    Cons

    IT is a support organization. This is true of many companies, however its just important to understand that distinction.
    This is also a highly regulated company because its in Medical so it takes a longer time to get things done.
