Field Service Engineer II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – October 16, 2016
There are many divisions of this company. I am an home based field service engineer for the diagnostics division based in the Baltimore area. So, I can't really comment to much on the corporate workings, but it does appear everyone is happy.
One of the last employers with a corporate pension plan outside of the 401k plan.
Large regulated corporate environment not a fit for me.
Advancement is a little tough with senior positions exclusively filled externally. Work life balance doesn't exist for field personnel. Job description says 50-75% travel but 100% is the norm while people are travelling to cities where others live. No clear promotion path with "manager's discretion" being the goal to achieve and that's ever changing.
Travel points, some amazing peers
100% travel and no advancement due to exclusive external hires
Continuous Improvement Leader (Former Employee) – Holdrege, NE – June 9, 2016
Fast paced work environment. People are willing to go the extra mile to get the job done. Hard working individuals. Management encourages the use of Kaizens to tackle problems that arise or those that are long standing.
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Columbus, NE – June 27, 2016
The whole company stays true to helping make healthy lives and improve the health of the world as much as possible. I would suggest anyone to work here if you are looking to impact the world even in the smallest way.
If i could have the opportunity, I would love to make BD a permanent work place. Overall, its an excellent place to work. I were given the opportunity to get experience as an press operator and I always wanted the opportunity to work at BD.
Senior Network Analyst (Former Employee) – Franklin Lakes, NJ – October 26, 2015
some of the things I learned was received constant web based classes on compliance SOX, HIPA, international work relations as well as IT related processes. my co-workers were a wonderful enjoyable group of people. The hardest part of the job was working with vendors to resolve issues with archiving was very frustrating and consumed much of my time.
Shared Service Center (Former Employee) – San Antonio – January 21, 2013
"We help all people live healthy lives" is what they claim to be their motto, but they left out the part UNLESS you are a BD employee. If you have car trouble and over an hour late it counts the same as night coming at all: so might as well just take an entire day.
Work was not that hard but not flexible if you need time off for emergencies.
Clean-up Crew (Current Employee) – Kensington, PA – June 16, 2013
I did not appreciate how being that this was a temp agency, managers had their favorites and if you are not known like that, you are likely to one of the last picked to go on an assignment. Maybe if an employee is absent or they don't have enough crew then you will get picked. I believe everyone deserves a fair chance.
Production (Former Employee) – Sumter, SC – October 9, 2014
The work environment was great. Everyone got what they needed done. We made sure that our products was made like how it was suppose to. At the end of the day it was great to see that we accomplish our goals.
Everyone did what the needed to and the pay.
The lunch was too high and breaks need to be longer for those who work 12 hours.
CG Generalist (Current Employee) – Remote – September 27, 2013
I was responsible for converting 2D product concepts into color 3D representations, as well as any 2D graphics, Video Editing or web design that is required to be completed. My boss is great to work with and has reasonable dead lines.
