Great company
Table Worker / Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  Covington, GAMay 24, 2019
It was a great company if you was working directly for that company. But working with the company as a temp/contract worker is horrible. you never know from this day to that day if you have a job.
Pros
has a cafeteria to buy lunches
Cons
hard to get on full time

Rework Operator (Current Employee) –  Moncks Corner, SCMay 23, 2019
I’m not satisfied with the communication and the fact that there is very little care for employees. Drastic changes have been made and management never has answers to the questions and concerns Employees have.
Pros
Close to home.
Cons
Communication and care for employees are very poor.

AP Stripper/Dipper (Former Employee) –  Moncks Corner, SCMay 22, 2019
Work is fair compared to compensation received. Management is fair and gave employees freedom in meetings. Environment of workplace is friendly and easy going. Breaks were fair for hours worked in the day. Management gives employees freedom to voice opinions in meetings. Job offers amazing benefits and compensation wages.
Pros
wonderful benefits, great paying wage

Terrible place. Stay Away!
Machinist Operator (Current Employee) –  Canaan, CTMay 22, 2019
Stay away! Horrendous management. Ridiculous expectations. Most of the equipment at the plant is old and outdated. There’s lots of favoritism! Unless you are a tech, supervisor or cell lead expect to work like a dog. Only upside, there’s plenty of OT. Currently looking for employment elsewhere.
Pros
Fair pay and good vision/dental insurance.
Cons
Short Breaks, Management & the culture there

Working at BD
QM Associate Scientist (Former Employee) –  Sparks, MDMay 18, 2019
Was a great place to work for but slowly declined over the years. If in production or similar areas there is no work life balance. They say you work 40 hours with some overtime when interview however in reality you work easily 50-60 hours a week on a regular basses with long hours and/or working weekends also.
BD had great benefits pension/401, vacation, sick time, medical dental, etc. However current medical though still good seems to be a shadow of what it used to be. Originaly more options and better overall coverage but know practically no choice and more out of pocket expenses.
If work in office job work life mush better. Even if you work some overtime if is more comfortable.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Excessive overtime.

Management Change in Clinical Affairs
Clinical Development (Former Employee) –  Franklin LakesMay 16, 2019
Historically, the Leader of this team was not experienced and did not take responsibility for bad decisions. There was also obvious favoritism, promoting only 2 individuals who were loyal. Recent changes may bring improvements as the executive manager has been reassigned and one of the loyal subjects has retired. New leadership may result in positive changes for Clinical and Medical Affairs team. Time will tell.
Pros
Great pay
Cons
No work life balance, retribution for speaking up, resistance to change

Could be worse
PRODUCTION OPERATOR III (Former Employee) –  MDMay 5, 2019
If you have no spouse or kids id highly recommend applying. if you have a life outside of work then you'll be in for a lot of headaches. Imagine going back to high school, taking your worst/most hated class for 10hrs( including weekends mostly) but you get paid. Now if you're looking for a job with plenty of overtime this is definitely it. But with that OT comes loads of gossip, backstabbing, under cutting, bad mouthing, cattiness and everything else you experienced during your teenage years. The work is mundane but the work atmosphere is what will drive you up the wall. A saying adopted by most of the veteran employees is " only the strong survive" when it should be " only the immature survive".
Pros
Pay. Benefits. Semi set schedule
Cons
high school atmosphere. gossip. People more focused on things other than their work

Good place to learn. Poor pay.
Assembler (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 1, 2019
If you end up in a good department things can go pretty well. If your a hard worker expect more work because you have to pick up other peoples slack and there are many workers that cant perform their job to help ease the work load.
Pros
Good place to learn. Welcoming people.
Cons
Poor pay. Poor advancement. Not much cross training.

Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Franklin LakesApril 30, 2019
BD is a high tech company with a range of opportunities that will satisfy anyone with ambition and perseverance.
BD is the world leader in the manufacture of disposable medical devices such as needles, IVs, catheters and a full range of products used in hospitals and medical offices worldwide.
BD also has a High Tech side manufacturing many diagnostic machines and laboratory equipment.


The culture is mildly competitive which means you will not get bored, but cooperative when you need help. The culture of mutual respect and cooperation puts minor differences aside in pursuit of the main company goals.
BD is dedicated to being the best with their products, and they encourage their Associates to embrace the same goals.

Great place to work!!

Good place to work
Operator (Current Employee) –  Broken Bow, NEApril 19, 2019
I’ll start this review by saying that I have worked in several manufacturing plants and this one is the best I’ve worked at.

I’ve always had a good interaction with the supervisors (facilitators) here. They have a good group of men and women.

Working on the line, the majority of people are good to work with and the majority set ups are good to work with.

Most days go by smoothly, there are a few days that are bad, comes with every job.

Bottom line is that if you show up and put in some effort, you’ll succeed at BD.

There are a few negatives. The work schedule is the sole reason, in my summation, that makes it difficult for some people to work here. The vast majority of jobs are 4 days on 4 days off - 12 hour shifts. The first couple of days off are spent recovering from the workload. Depending on the line you are put on some set ups (although seldom) have itchy feet and one is hard pressed to see them on the line unless they are called.

Double standards regarding vacation and cell phone policy. Some set ups (again, seldom) have their face buried in their cell phones and are not disciplined yet if an operator is caught it’s cause for a reproach. The plant has a shutdown every year so it’s hard to take vacation if you are not a set up or set up/operator.

Overall, good place to work.
Pros
Pay, benefits, people
Cons
Small handful of bad apples, vacation can be difficult to navigate

Production (Former Employee) –  Broken Bow, NEApril 18, 2019
The pay was wonderful. The benefits were also really good. Very strict policy on sick leave. Don't get involved in the gossipsing and just do your job. The "lifers" out there run the show and they'll let you know it too.
Pros
Great pay and benifitts
Cons
Politics and gossip
