BD has changed since CareFusion Acquisition
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) –  MarylandNovember 29, 2016
BD once separated itself from other Medical Device companies however it has changed so much, their identity and reputation have minimalized. Work Life balance is any oxymoron, a normal work week is 60+ hours. Perhaps i have rose colored glasses thinking it will be any different with another manufacturer, but BD is taking advantage of too many good people and breaking them is disheartening. It is unfortunate BD has changed so quickly, it was once a great place to work, it has the feel of a small private company with employee satisfaction at the forefront. Unfortunately the acquisition of debt has the company scrambling to pay back quickly no matter the cost or associate turnover. My advice to management is to pay more attention to the associates and the company cash generation, the manufacturing plant. Yes BD, you are a manufacturing company!
Pros
a decent paycheck
Cons
benefits, work life balance, severe corporate disconnect from plants

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

If you like to take credit for others or are an external candidate it's great
Implementation Analyst (Former Employee) –  FieldSeptember 30, 2016
The harder you work the more likely someone will take credit or set you up. It's those people who get promoted. External hires for all promotable positions instead of internal candidates is the way they like it. Unskilled external folks who need to be trained by tenured employees who are organizationally under them.
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Lack of direction, lack of internal promotion, zero work life balance.

QC Lab Tech/QA Assoc (Current Employee) –  Burlington, NCApril 8, 2016
The typical work day is routine work. There are many applications, software and processes to learn. The hardest part of the job is the travel from Durham to Burlington everyday. I have learned that when you have good help, you should keep them. My co-workers are hard working and love their job.
Pros

Cons
Transitions of employee's.

After working here you'll be ready to train in the UFC
Medical Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  United StatesFebruary 24, 2016
This company continues to try to change and in doing so you're hit with new company additions (not product innovation), new management, new administrative tasks (sales inhibitors), layoffs, until you are beat into submission of accepting lower compensation and grinding it out for the "big win".

Poor leadership team in Global Support
System Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sparks Glencoe, MDOctober 26, 2016
Team leads and managers do not take ownership of anything in Global Support. There is no guidance to help someone through the BD culture. No training was provided, no clear direction to expectations, and no acceptance of any failures. When help was sought, leads always deflected to others in departments that were not part of global support. Leads were quick to throw others under the bus and got extremely upset if anyone complained.
Pros
Pay is good, fitness center on-site, cafeteria on-site
Cons
Poor leadership and accountability, poor training, very little direction

No longer exists, but was assimilated into BD Bioscience, I think. Good products made and had dependible manufacturing processes.
Senior Biochemist (Former Employee) –  Hunt Valley, MDJuly 14, 2015
BDMS was a good place to work. It had family events and allowed family members to tour where "Mom & Dad" worked. Pay was competitive for East Coast and health benefits were good. Coming straight out of grad school, they paid my first month's rent and put me up in temporary housing for a month, allowing me to get on my feet. Company had box seats at Oriole games and gave employees opportunities to go for free. I loved working there in the Baltimore-Washington DC corridor!
Pros
Considerate HR group, management that understood people's needs at different times in their career, pretty good pay, good health benefits.
Cons
Had several BD groups in the area, but not close enough to collaborate without driving.

Opportunities were provided to learn various areas of the business.

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.

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
