Good Company, Plants depend on Managment
Process Automation Engineer (Current Employee), PRAugust 5, 2015
A typical day of work is of at least 10 to 12 hours. The balance of life vs work tend to go more to work rather than family (remember this depend on the plant you work).. Management at global level is top of the line, but it may varies from plant to plant.

BD
Human Resources Generalist (Former Employee), Carlsbad, CAJune 29, 2015
Pros: People, Culture, Manager
Cons: Temporary Assignment
A typical day at work involved working with management to ensure smooth closure of site by maintaining employee engagement. Completed site initiatives that were in place such as Health Assessments and Career Assistant Workshops through Lee Hecht Harrison. Processed payroll and managed leave of absences as well as Workman's Comp claims. Scheduled and conducted all exit interviews for site closure. Created group presentation for exiting employees to ensure a collective understanding of BD's severance package.
Management was a big help in my success in helping me understand BD's policies and procedures in a short period of time. Co-workers were great and easy to communicate and work with.
The position was under contract for only 6mths and it required immediate submersion into understanding BD's culture, benefits, policies and procedures.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the staff and exiting employees. Overall attitudes were great considering the site was closing.
