    I worked at BD full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the other employees were great to work with.

    Cons

    Training completely disjointed & one size of training fits all. Employees are too frighten to state otherwise their jobs maybe threaten

    Advice to Management

    New employees should not be like treated more than like trying on a set of clothing and then discarded when the person is not a clone of everyone else. People all have families and are affected badly when staff are just discarded.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at BD

    Pros

    Good products with good technical support. Good company structure, with business unit structure allowing for good customer focus.

    Cons

    Poor managers empire building, getting Direct reports to do all the work and getting all the credit. Too numbers focused, forgetting about the customer and the employees. Sydney centric organisation with all career progression focused in Sydney.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the poor performing managers, respect employees and their contributions more.
