Great place to work
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Franklin Lakes, NJMay 7, 2018
BD is a global leader in medical technology. The company offers a competitive salary and the culture is dynamic. It is a great atmosphere and smart people surround you. It offers many opportunities to learn and grow in your career. There are however, many changes occurring within the organization. Communication can be better but overall, a great place to work.

BD Internship for Mech. Engineer
Research & Development Engineer (Intern) (Former Employee) –  Franklin Lakes, NJMay 2, 2018
BD's Summer Internship program for engineers is an excellent and well developed program. The full time staff is incredibly open and helpful offering guidance and advice. The program itself is the perfect balance of teaching while letting you learn and work for yourself.

Still trying to figure out what to do after the Carefusion merger.
Director (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 2, 2018
Management has been very slow to develop and share a cohesive roadmap for moving forward. Employees lack direction, have a poor work-life balance and are not provided opportunities to advance.

They have a good compensation package if you can put up with the lack of direction and job insecurity.
Pros
Good compensation package
Cons
Long hours, lack of direction and poor management

Under Going Chnage
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMay 2, 2018
R&D management needs to organize, provide clear direction and get rid of the toxic environment. I really can not say much more than this, just look at what you are getting into.

Medical devices manufacturing
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Columbus, NEApril 27, 2018
Large employer in a small city, so as a new employee I was informed to be mindful that many people working there were related to other employees.

Overall the company was very professional and hired the best people they could find. Technical and manufacturing staff were all dedicated to doing the best job possible, providing medical devices globally on a reliable schedule.
Pros
HR department was very professional and helpful
Cons
Limited internal opportunities for advancement

Large company politics
Manager, Molding Vendor Management Unit, BD (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 12, 2018
Not a lot of communication between departments. No control of your assigned projects,other departments just get in the way of you completing your tasks/projects in a timely manner, which will effect your review.

Good pay for a reason
MES Utility (Former Employee) –  Columbus, NEApril 11, 2018
Job paid very well and there was no shortage of hours available. That being said, there was also a lot of non optional overtime. The work culture is very competitive, often in a non productive way. Management is overly invasive, making rules about nearly every operation you perform though often enforcing them poorly. The hardest part of the job is dealing with short breaks that seem to be below industry standard, while keeping job performance high. The most enjoyable part of the job honestly was the financial security that it brought. It might take up a lot of your time and bring a lot of stress, but time off is a lot more relaxing when you aren't struggling financially.
Pros
Pay, other compensation, some chances for advancement
Cons
Stress, long hours, management
