I have been working at CareFusion full-time

Pros

Stable environment. Potential for products to save lives. Located in San Diego, CA.

Cons

Very few "A" players, especially in management. Lack of support for career development. Always in cost cutting or spending freeze mode. Little communication. Heavy weight processes.

Advice to Management

Stop acting like a money-losing bankruptcy bound enterprise, and start acting like the money-making market leader we are.

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

    Pros

    Nice 401K. Good number of PTO days to start. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    The work environment at this company is toxic. Everyone is worried about layoffs that are discretely being executed. All managers in the department have their own agendas. The manager of program managers preaches Agile but doesn't have the slightest clue on how to make it work in an FDA-regulated environment. None of the software program managers have ever written a single line of code before in their lives; yet they strut around like their gifts from God. If you know someone at the company in the management level, you'll get promoted or hired automatically; regardless of how poor and obsolete your skills are. Be sure to buy a nice set of knee pads if you want to move up at CareFusion. This is nepotism and cronyism at its finest!
