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

    Pros

    This is a good company when it comes to work life balance and resources available. This is a large company so they have resources like SAP and salesforce.com.

    Cons

    There is a real disconnect with mission and short-term goals. There never seemed to be a long term plan and some of the products in the portfolio did not fit the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate more with the rest of the team. Some managers were excellent and others were in over their head. There is great potential to grow their leaders.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In a word, the people. It never ceases to amaze me how many great people work at this company. People who want to see CFN succeed. People who want to see the companys' products benefit the market. People who will go out of their way to make your issue their issue.

    Cons

    The People are overworked and underpaid. It is the never changing saga and plight of the individual human resource belonging to the publically traded entity who owes nothing to anyone except the stockholder.

    Depending on the department, the pay is not in keeping with the market; we have lost many good people to greener grass.

    Sometimes it feels as though promotion of work-life balance is lip service.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for the voice of the employee to reach the executive level in forums other than generic Voice of Employee surveys, where the questions are so vague the responses can interpreted 180 degrees from the respondants' intent.

    When saving money in the second half of the fiscal year, be consistent with the level of savings measures in all departments...restricting a $50 spend on lunch for a mgr and their team doesn't seem in line with a accidental email to all employees informing of a sales spiff all expenses paid vacation to Costa Rica for the top few sales reps and their families.

    Take a hard look at your hierarchy. Find a way to assess your low-mid mgmt. Ask your employees...All managers should be required to submit a 180-degree review that is is then sent/viewed by that persons' manager.

    When cutting, impacting the line level headcount forces efficiency, but only to a point. Some depts at CareFusion are well beyond that point. Further cuts to those actually doing the work (ie non-management) are counterproductive in both the short and longterm.
