Huge campus, gym and huge cafeteria
Key Accounts Representative - US Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Franklin Lakes, NJApril 20, 2017
When I was working there it was a bit intimidating. The place is one giant cube farm. It's a multicultural work environment. I learned so much about the medical device business. The hardest part is that if you do not have the right degree, don't expect to move up the ladder no matter how much time you put in or how hard you work.
Pros
Compensated well when you work hard.
Cons
Degree needed to advance in the company.

Membership Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Franklin Lakes, NJApril 20, 2017
BD is a good company to work for, however they were understaffed, so as I new person I didn't really receive the proper guidance for my overall development. People were helpful, but there was no real structure when it came to employee development.

All mergers and disruptions cause waves, however, current management is not response to the work force. This is resulting in low morale and good people are leaving. Need reality check.

time off and work from home flexibility
Cons
direction of management, no career ladder, red tape

the work is simple. Parts are always moving but the work is SIMPLE. it was not enough to keep me motivated. LTA (J.K) knew less than I did so he was no help when it was time to learn something new.

Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sandy, UTApril 5, 2017
BD is a great company to work for.
Good people, great products.

Loved working here. Unfortunately, management was unwilling to apply proven techniques to optimize production throughput using Toyota Production Systems and Lean Manufacturing techniques.

Otherwise, a great place to work.
Pros
Lots of great co-workers
Cons
Management refused to implement proven lean manufacturing techniques

Consultants be wary
Consultant/Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Franklin Lks, NJMarch 14, 2017
BD is a great place to work as a consultant as long you don't get your hopes up of getting a full-time associate position. The beautiful facility at the corporate offices will wow you, but their trend is to rotate out consultants once you hit the 1 year to 18-month mark, rather than bring you on as a permanent employee. As a consultant, they allow you the flexibility of choosing your own hours (for the most part) and allow you to work-from-home on occasion. But don't go for the dangling carrot, thinking once you get your foot in the door, you are set. You will be disappointed. They are letting veteran employees go and replacing them with consultants. So, don't give up a full-time opportunity elsewhere.
Pros
Nice facility
Cons
No opportunity for full-time with benefits

BD is a good company to work for unless you need steady income.
Senior Product Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 13, 2017
The work itself is very interesting. You get to tear into a ventilator unit and replace a large circuit board that controls the pneumatic part of the unit. Then you calibrate the unit and perform an operational verification procedure to ensure everything is working per manual specifications. You get to travel to various parts of the United States and stay in very nice accommodations with a rental car all at company expense. The hardest thing was waiting for parts when there was a malfunction. It was a major loss of time. For me, the most enjoyable part of the job was working on the machine itself since I enjoy working with technology. The workplace was very professional. I am proud to be an employee of this company. Although the management encouraged communication, it did not always seem to work both ways, i.e. from manager to employee.
Pros
Travel, very nice accomodations, rental car, rewarding work
Cons
The work is not steady - you only get paid when you're out at a site.

Nice people, ineffective leadership
Total Rewards Consultant (Former Employee) –  Franklin Lakes, NJMarch 3, 2017
Contracted for BD for 7 months. Very nice campus to work in and great colleagues. However, there is very poor leadership and everyone seems to leave after 3-5 years which results in lack of continuity and confusion. They change contractors often. Very strange and secretive environment. They do not work smart and often the work is redundant because there are so many silos and turnovers. There does seem to be a disconnect between corporate and manufacturing sides of the firm.
Pros
Campus, colleagues, parking
Cons
Lack of leadership, constant turnover of contractors, employees fearing for their jobs, lack of collaboration within your own team
