Advancement opportunities to lower level management available, great benefits packages including continuing education.
Sr Quality Engineer, Label Control Supervisor (Current Employee), Cockeysville, MDMay 30, 2015
Pros: advancement opportunities, benefits
Cons: no upper management advancement opportunities
Opportunities were provided to learn various areas of the business. Gained great experience as a Process Technologist to develop knowledge of manufacturing, filling line equipment and Aseptic processing. As Quality Engineer, I have increased my knowledge of regulatory requirements and developed competency with risk assessment, non-conformance investigations, complaint handling, audit responses for customers and regulatory agencies, and change management. As Label Control Supervisor, I have restructured the department to accommodate expanded product offerings by adding headcount and labeling equipment.

Despair incuding job enviroment but with excellent pay.
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Canaan, CTMay 11, 2015
Pros: Good pay
Cons: Short breaks, Bad hours, bad management
The job was hard, the hours sucked (We were often stuck with "Mandatory Overtime" which sometimes meant working 7 days a week) and the management was incompetent. Getting vacation time is practically impossible as it's YOUR responsibility to find people to cover for you. The only upside is that the company pays extremely well.

BD is a great place to work
Microbiology Laboratory Technician (Former Employee), Canaan, CTApril 20, 2015
BD pays its workers well. As long as you are a good worker, they take care of you. The job may be difficult. BD has very high quality standards, which is important since they produce sterile needles and syringes for patients.

Challenging Future
Manager (Current Employee), New JerseyApril 12, 2015
BD has been a great place to work, but the acquisition of CareFusion will challenge us. Change is NOT something BD is good at. Survival in the future is dependent on major change at the speed of light, not the speed of the purple and orange turtle.

Terrible place to work.
Project Engineer (Current Employee), Broken Bow, NEApril 4, 2015
This location is run by floor associates and not by true leadership. You are held to incomprehensible deadlines not set by you but by managers that think when the projects should done. 5 Million dollar projects are not accomplished in 3 months!

Wonderful Place to work, tough on contractors
Engineering Technician (Current Employee), Franklin Lakes, NJMarch 9, 2015
Absolutely wonderful place to work, but being there as a contractor is difficult with so many people competing for the same entry level jobs. Atmosphere is friendly between contractors but competition is fierce and expect some late nights proving you deserve the job more than the guy next to you.

Not Happy
Process Operator III (Current Employee), Sparks, MDMarch 8, 2015
I am not happy at BD. I am under paid and over worked. I am working 6 /7 days a week and I just not happy there. We are expected to work so many hours that you don't have any time for family.

Productive and very nice place to work
SAP Basis Administrator (Current Employee), Franklin Lakes, NJFebruary 27, 2015
Productive and very nice place to work. A day at BD is very cool and the people are very friendly. I have learned in depth knowledge in SAP BASIS administration. The Management is very co-operative and friendly. Colleagues are very sportive and fun to work with . The hardest part of the job would be multitasking. But I over come that with effective planning at work. Hassle free environment. The most enjoyable part of the job will be interacting with various users across the globe and resolving their issues in SAP systems.

Business Analyst - Contract Analytics and Oper (Former Employee), Franklin Lakes, NJFebruary 23, 2015
Very fast paced environment, but more than adequate training was provided. Analytical skills along with Excel skills were an important part of the position. Needed to be a team player, yet work independently on a daily basis.

Company made products at this facility and assembled there in house.
machine operator (Former Employee), Sumter, SCJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: just pleasant atmosphere
Cons: all machines were being set up for robots and less associate help.
It was a job that I really enjoyed going to every day. People working here were helpful about learning the job and pleasant to work with. Learned how the robot system worked and how to fix the problem when it went wrong. Items were sealed in a sanitary package for hospital and doctor offices.
