  • they're working on diversity and inclusion initiatives but there's still a long way to go in that arena, particularly in terms of representation at the top tier of our organization

What I like about the company

there is a strong emphasis on training and career growth opportunities which i believe most people appreciate

What I dislike about the company

if you're not at the corporate headquarters there is a bit of a feeling of disconnection. also, there's lots of travel required which can be difficult to balance with personal responsibilities

Suggestions for improvement

  • I appreciate that BD openly talks about wanting to be more diverse. Unfortunately, our leadership team is not diverse and represents Anglo male society. I would change our culture by employeeing a more diverse leadership group. As a global company this will help us create better solutions and products for a bigger population.

What I like about the company

I have been able to travel to Ireland, Uganda and Kenya through leadership experience programs at BD. I was identified as a high potential and am now working closely with HR to ensure an accelerated career path. I appreciate that BD openly speaks about diversity and supports DACA recipients.

What I dislike about the company

I was fortunate enough to be identified as a high potential and have gotten opportunities to accelerate my career quickly. I have seen that this creates a tense environment for employees that are not identified as high potentials. They are not given the same opportunities and express their frustrations. In my specific business unit 50% of lab members are contractors and have a high turn over rate. This again creates a bad environment between employees.

Company Culture

Safety is preached but never enforced.

Support from management

managers and supervisors and leads have no clue what you do, nor do they care.

Teamwork

Individual choice.

Freedom to work independently

A huge plus. IF you already know what to do, it is easy to be independent. Management is clueless.

Internal Communication

Everyone acts like information is priceless and must never be shared--weird.

Gender Equality

Women are relegated to "easy" positions.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They do not value experience.

Career Development

Nothing.

Overall compensation for your work

No bump from temp to perm. Pay is low for work.

Work-Life Balance

very stressful lifestyle

Company Image

They claim to be wonderful, on the outside.

Job Security

They have a hard time filling positions. Temps don't want to stay usually.

Workplace Safety

Worst I have ever seen. Twelve incidents in the last 3 months.

Challenging Work

If you don't do it, they will just hire more temps until someone does it.

Inclusive / Diverse

Cliques and favoritism is the order of the day.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Change the culture.

What I like about the company

Nothing.

What I dislike about the company

Toxic workplace for conscientious employees. If you like to layabout and be worthless, this is your company.

  • The division I work in needs a good house cleaning of middle managent.

What I like about the company

Energetic company, co-workers are top-notch, products have real potential to make a difference.

What I dislike about the company

Middle management is all about the timeline and their bonuses. The good work done by "worker bees" is swept into the gutter in favor of wasting time with swirl, chest pounding, and cutting corners which delays the timeline anyway. Just doing the right thing would take a lot less time and make a better product, without burning the teams out and pushing talented people to quit.
