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

Pros

Great industry and commitment to helping others. Most functions, outside of HR, generally well-run. Beautiful office campus.

Cons

Highly political and biased decision making in internal promotional/selection and rewards - relatively high HR turnover in the U.S. HR senior management has little to no interest in HR being an employee advocate as they are highly focused on being "strategic" only. Little to no value for lower level employees (entry level staff, hourly/support) long terms employees - very prone to thinking who's new/young will be better. They tout diversity - but the interpretation is very narrow and applies to being diverse in race only and results in overall narrow-minded thinking.

Advice to Management

Get some new outside talent to lead HR - leaders who will challenge management to see the true meaning of diversity and really living the core values - not just using values as a marketing tool.
