Great Place To Work
Material Handler I (contract employee) (Current Employee) –  Sparks, MD 21152July 18, 2016
Management is fair and level headed. Lots of opportunity for advancement. Full time employees have excellent benefits, 99% of co-workers seem happy and easy going; they are very easy to work with. I am eager to get hired full time and spend my last ten years of employment (or more) here before I retire.
Pros
great working conditions
Cons
none that I can think of

Not a great place to work
Tool Crib Attendant (Current Employee) –  Columbus, NEJuly 7, 2016
Management at BD usually has someone in mind before they post a job. Management is very closed minded. BD's doesn't promote from within much. Negative morale.

Developer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 27, 2016
Working at BD during their transition period and merger with Care Fusion was very interesting and for the most part a great learning and growing experience. As with any corporate mergers transitioning people and processes takes time and can be challenging and political posturing and shared consensus on what is best . They are on the right track and once things are decided upon a systems and commonality platform processes should fall in line .
Pros
On site cafeteria, enaging work, health care leader
Cons
There are none

Not worth the money
Molding Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Canaan, CTJune 3, 2016
Working 12 hour days in an extremely hot (90+) and stuffy environment with an impossible workload was a normal workday in the Canaan plant. The molding department is by far the epitome of dysfunction in Canaan.

This company does everything in their power to cut costs at the production workers expense. Management limits training so that skills nessecary to safely perform the job are never taught in an attempt to save money. Continuous additions to the daily workload by the beaurocrats in the offices have created an enviorment of that makes it literally is impossible to do your job.

BD will also threaten your job at every possible opportunity in an attempt to force their workers to meet their impossible expectations. The molding department is extremely understaffed and over worked. Mandatory overtime is common due to the fact that the temporary workers usually do not last long because of the conditions.

Despite making more product than ever, there is no where to advance to in the molding department. People have been working there for decades and the only way to possible advance is in the unfortunate circumstance of someone dying.

The management has decimated the staff leading to poorer quality and a disgustingly filthy work enviorment.

The equipment and technology at the plant is all pre Cold War era that is in a constant state of disrepair. Management turns a blind eye to the obvious problems with production flow from the dilapidated machines for fear that it might have to be addressed and affect their bottom line.

Management just cares about one thing,
  more... not the anxiety ridden working enviorment, not the insane workload with failing equipment, not that your prescriptions cost hundreds with their health insurance, just the numbers.  less
Pros
Competitive pay
Cons
Mandatory overtime, no opportunities for advancement, understaffed, unhealthy working enviorment.

Exciting and dynamic workplace
VALIDATION ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Grayson, GA.June 1, 2016
This company always has an interest in its employees, as demonstrated by special luncheon events, ice cream breaks and company parties/picnics. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction between co-workers. The most difficult part of the job was the limited accessibility for promotion.
Pros
Free lunches occasionally & ice cream breaks; Company picnic
Cons
Little opportunity for advancement

Production Lead (Former Employee) –  Burlington, NCApril 27, 2016
Daily operations run smoothly most days. If any issues arise, management and co-workers are part of the resolution. Hardest part of this job was keeping staff at capacity. The most enjoyable part of this job was the many personalities of my co-workers.
