I worked at CareFusion full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people. Hands down, some of the best co-workers I've EVER worked with. Professional, compassionate. involved and dedicated.

Cons

The management. Middle management, in particular. They have their own agenda, the right hand doesn't know (or care) what the left hand is doing. I watched a thriving, alive, vibrant, hard working, successful department be obliterated by one person. Numerous complaints were lodged, and nothing was done. Most of the department has left and the heart of it is completely gone. Apparently, so is the manager, finally. But the damage was done.

Advice to Management

LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES. When there are complaints about a manager or managers, LISTEN. Don't dismiss the grunt workers. They are the ones working with these people day in and day out and they see so much more than you ever will. When you're around, everyone is on their best behavior, and you will never see the yelling, the deceit, the lies you're being told....please, listen. And stop the constant RIFs. It's exceedingly dificult to work in a culture where you know that any day, another 100 people or so will be laid off.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pays very well, and you'll get to work on life saving products. You can learn and can fairly easily move up the ladder (if you are good).

    Cons

    Lots of politics, and many of the good people that I had started with had left and moved on.
    FDA!

    Advice to Management

    Sales people should not manage engineering groups.

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

    Pros

    Great working with Hospital pharmacy staff as well as other Analyst, engineers etc...

    Cons

    Executive management makes all decisions from top down, no input from the field staff. Very difficult to get support from the home office. Pay is low for responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Slim the executive managers before field staff. The field staff is what keeps the customers happy.
