Good place to work - good response to Covid

Featured review

BD selected this as a representative review
Appreciate that we have been able to work from home full-time. There was little support for at home supplies though, had to buy my own. Can't print from home, have to go the the office to print something.

Siloed workplace

I worked on the conversion when BD purchased Carefusion. The work was great, but there was a big disconnect between departments and interdepartmental communication was discouraged, even when it would have benefited leadership of both departments. Leaders were terrified of being removed so anything that did not go perfectly well was blamed on their teams. This created a lot of tension and trust issues between team members. Some leaders were better than others, of course. It was such a shame to see the front line leaders act in such a manner as it hurt the productivity of the company and destroyed the culture at the time. Of course they had all of the “right” messaging surrounding diversity with affiliate groups but it was just another box to check off. The culture that was portrayed and actual practices were so disparate it was obvious it was a message directed to investors and not intended to mean anything for the employees. The cafeteria was a plus!

Pros

On-site cafeteria.

Cons

See above.

Calm Company Culture

Everyone loves working for BD. But they would rather keep hiring contractors without ever giving them opportunities to convert to permanent. BD provides clubs to keep employees engaged.

Pros

Exception cafeteria with such a variety of foods.

Cons

Too many contractors

Big mediocre company

BD is not what it was 10 years ago. It became very big and slow and company generally do not care about employees. Leadership and corporate people are bullies and do not know how to manage warehouses. Too many corporate projects and reporting is done to satisfy corporate "leaders". High turnovers in every organization since people are burned out and unhappy. I am looking for other opportunities.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

No work life balance, too many corporate projects, lack of clear direction and leadership, no trust in leadership, understaffed, high turnovers.

Great Job For Those With Little Experience But Nothing Else

If you have little to no work experience then this job will be good for you as pretty much anyone who applies will get hired. However do be prepared for work weeks significantly longer than advertised, a lack of sunlight, apathetic coworkers, and a massive understaffing problem.

Pros

Holidays off

Cons

60 hour work weeks and low pay

There is alot of drama here though and I have been harassed by a coworker there and nothing we really done because of it. Pays alright there are benefits and some Paid Time Off

Pros

Cons

Drama

Bad management looking to increase stock price

No serious long term goals. They cancel every risky project so the joke is 'The Search for Average'. Layoffs every September where they get rid of the people who know the most and tend to be the highest paid. Used to be a great place. No, it's a joke. Management bounces from one idea to the next. Very sad.

Pros

Good cafeteria and work life balance

Cons

Typical Corporate. Employees are just a numbers. Replacable

Management does not care for employees. Supervising is based on fear. Favoritism is very popular and informants amongst team members are encouraged and supported. Poor working environment and low moral.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Unhealthy work environment

Great for those with 20yrs+ experience - Not Entry Level

Everyone who works here has 15+ years of experience. Do not work here if you are young, disabled, POC, entry level, or want upward mobility. You will not get the support and training you need to succeed. This job is good if you already can do the work without training. There is little flexibility. job security isn't a thing anymore. There are no pensions or incentives to keep employees. So, if you are already very proficient in the role with at least 15 years of experience and are not in any minority, you'll fit right in and do just fine.

Pros

Work from home, health insurance

Cons

Lack of training, lack of communication of expectations, lack of diversity, low compensation

Productive and fun place to work

Great company to work for! The Mangement care about you as an individual. If you need more training no matter how long you have been there they have resources available. Main thing is that they tell you to ask questions even if asked the same questions 1000 times. Management really wants you to learn and care about you learning!

Pros

Great management

Cons

None

Typical corporate private company

Working here was a stepping stone for me. The annual layoffs every year to boost the returns to the shareholders appears to be the main objective. I learned a lot and knew when it was time to go.

Pros

Flexibile schedule

Cons

No job security

Employees are never aware of layoffs.

Unable to plan for the worst. No One likes to be caught off guard. BD doesn't appreciate employee loyalty. Loyalty does not exist at BD. BD only sees employees an asset that has no real value. Easily replaced at any time for any reason.

Pros

Product Training is good

Cons

Lack of promotion

Worked well then didn’t

Benefits were good. Work life balance is horrible. Always on the road is an understatement. You do get paid for travel hours as well though. Management doesn’t look out for their people. They will throw you under the bus without a second thought if it even resembles they will have to take some heat. Overall, would not recommend.

Pros

Good Benefits

Cons

Work life balance bad, Management a joke

Poor management/ culture of expendability

The Peter Principle working as expected. Immediate management is incompetent in terms of the day to day operations, as well as staff treatment. I'm sure their reports to higher management look pretty fire though. My current manager likes to cloister themselves in their office, and seemingly enjoys being ignorant of the issues that plague the workplace, both work related, and interpersonal. Totally (and apparently purposefully) unapproachable,and is QUICK to either threaten with accountability or just throw you under the bus if it suits them. There are only BOSSES here, no LEADERS. Pay is ok, days off are pretty chill, but I would only recommend working here until something that pays more comes along.

Pros

Pay, days off

Cons

Critically lacking in effective leadership
