The enviornment is nice, very long hours.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Canaan, CTDecember 12, 2016
BD is a good place to work at if you are single with no family and no other forms of commitment as you will be spending a majority of your time at the plant. It is extremely fast paced and if you cannot keep up you will be left out. Co-workers in the night time really bond together to help each other out, however there are very few night workers so the crowd is thin and short supplied.
Pros
All 12 hours get paid for if on that shift
Cons
Very little time off of work and night shifts are difficult to balance daily life with

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

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

Laid back work environment in the field
Senior Analyst, Product Implementation (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 4, 2016
One of the best and highest paying jobs I've ever had. I love that I don't have a manager breathing down my neck all day "micromanaging" me. However, many have been affected by recent lay-offs since BD acquired CareFusion...I am one of them!!!

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.

its a very productive and rewarding job
Clinical educator (Former Employee) –  asia pacificSeptember 26, 2016
very rewarding Job, as it focuses on people and building relationship.
typically, I connect with a variety of people specific with the healthcare professional, key professionals in charge to decide about improving healthcare practices. Our company is more on clinical solutions versus being a vendor alone.

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
