    I have been working at BD full-time

    Pros

    The organization I am in was recently acquired by BD. So far it has been the most transparent integration I've been associated with.
    Recent Corporate management changes indicate they are living up to their claimed goal of assessing best practices between the legacy organizations and incorporating those that position the organization for the greatest growth.

    Cons

    Too much time is spent, by too many people, in meetings. Sooner or later this will have a negative impact on our productivity.

    Advice to Management

    As the organization continues to grow, enable senior management to push more "low to moderate risk" decision making authority down to the appropriate subject matter expert levels.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at BD (Brisbane).

    Interview

    Informational interview with company representative for a job I was told the company HR would be posting - no follow up after an email saying she would update me when the job was in the formal interview process. Left two messages for the interviewer. No response received. Did not see the posting for the position.
