    Pros

    Satisfying job since it directly and positively affects people's lives.

    Cons

    Lots of personal agendas and politics going around in every single department, plant, and headquarters.

    There is a lot of empty rethoric at the management level, and leading by example at CF is totally non-existing. For example, a lot of emphasis is given to team work and goal achievement, but in reality projects are delayed or total failures due to the inability of managers to promote the very environment they speak of, but fail to enforce.

    Accountability at the management level is ZERO. The company is only successful because of the lower level employees who truly work hard ( and they are never really recognized by management).

    Promotions are only based upon popularity, how good people are at verbally justifying their jobs, "yes people", and personal agendas. Hard work, job experience/ knowledge, and commitment are ignored by management when it is time for reviews, bonuses, and promotions. Great thing that BD acquired CF, hopefully culture will be changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully BD will reorganize the culture from the top down. Parasitic managers and departments (such as "Advanced Engineering" and Quality) need to go.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and ok pay.

    Cons

    An entire department got their working hours changed to match the busiest traffic times in San Diego. All that, so people quit and they don't have to lay more people off, so they can outsource to NON AMERICAN, bad English speaking workers somewhere in another country. Daily bullying from the management, again, to make people quit. All that, for a big fat bonus for management and above. What about the customers?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please leave and let somebody take charge that knows what they are doing.

    I have been working at CareFusion full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best coworkers I could ever ask for! If managment cared half as much about putting out a good product and taking care of our customers as the typical worker the companys share price would easily be double of what it is.

    Cons

    Terrible upper managment destroying long term success for short term earnings.
    products pushed out before they are ready.
    benifits have slowly been cut over the years.
    No respect for work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about the company and less about your bonus the people under you know how to achieve great things get out of there way and let them do it.
