one of the hardest, most rewarding and humbling jobs i've ever had
Rubber mill/batch off operator (Former Employee), Sumter, SCJune 25, 2015
Pros: good work team and supervision
Cons: rubber dept is uncomfortably hot.
I worked the rubber mill, the most dangerous job BD of Sumter has. You need to be on your game everyday you're there. Mill operator isn't for the faint of heart, but when you see how life saving equipment starts its life right there on the mill, it puts things in perspective.

Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Mid AtlanticJune 24, 2015
Job was challenging but rewarding. Hands were often tied by actions you had no control over with pricing structures. Great compensation and good management lead me down a successful path.

Overview
Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Franklin Lakes, NJJune 23, 2015
Pros: We have wonderful benefits here
Cons: The cost of healthcare is rising
A typical day at work here for me is never repeated twice. I have diverse responsibilities and work with a large team of individuals. I am fortunate that I enjoy working with and also learn things from often. I have expanded on my Corporate business knowledge and have accomplished getting familiar and working well with all of Senior Management and the Executive Assistants that support them. The hardest part of my job can be assembling all of Senior Management in a very short period of time for a meeting. Management is located internationally and it's a challenge but I do get it done.

medium to low stress
Customer Service Representative II (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXJune 17, 2015
Cons: short breaks, not really experienced with call scoring, pay needs to be more for what is required of reps
currently on a temporary assignment through Robert Half and we are paid a lot less through Robert Half staffing agency and the reason the manager want to pay less than other agency because the pay as a temporary employee is more than what is being offered on a permanent basis.

As an intern, I was working on an independent project. I wish I got to experience what it was like working with others in the company rather than focusing on my own work.

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.

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!
