    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Terumo BCT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great customers, and they still love BCT. Lots to build on.

    Cons

    Inability to adapt to changing markets. Atmosphere of fear and adrenaline. Innovation discouraged by example. You can move sideways any time and anywhere. They are loathe to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Hire strategic thinkers and actually listen to them. Reward and promote those who perform.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Terumo BCT for less than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity as an undergraduate or fresh graduate to intern. Awesome work experience. More opportunity to contribute to projects than expected as an intern. Great benefits for everyone, even interns. Great location.

    Cons

    PC, be careful what you say or imply, some people seek out things to be offended by. If you intern, be prepared to be stuck as an intern for a LONG time. In addition, be prepared for your long internship experience to not be counted as experience upon landing a full time position. Be prepared to be let down by internal job postings, most internal postings are only up for 1 day and are likely promised to someone else.

    Advice to Management

    Change the name from graduate intern to contract engineer or something, every interview I've had thinks something is wrong with me for not having landed a job after interning for this long.
