Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: Overall, I think this is a good company to work for; I think they offer a lot of perks and incentives and treat their employees with care; they are doing well right now and growing. Cons: This is a very conservative company so they are really slow to make changes/improvements and are not always the most efficient.” —Current employee
“Pros: Benefits; gym reimbursement; 10-15 days vacation and 6 sick days; the vacation days grow the longer you are with the company; cheap cafeteria. Cons: Salary rules; benefits are great but you have to pay bills; there is a profit share; very strict about requirements on education; if you don’t have a bachelor’s degree, they will not allow you to be a manager or rep regardless of your experience and skills.” —Current product manager
“Pros: This prestigious company allows you to pursue your interests while developing their own products; the pay is excellent and you feel like a team member right away; the term “welcome aboard” is used by everyone when you first join and for a good reason – B. Braun manages a tight ship. Cons: It’s easy to get lost in the jumble of employees who work here; depending on who your manager is, you can be treated well or badly with no chances of getting transferred; upper management makes dumb product decisions and continues implementing them even if they know it is bad business.” —Former employee
“Pros: Training courses; good environment; team-building; stability. Cons: Limited career possibilities; advancement; salary; activity development.” —Former engineer
“Pros: Good working environment; relatively competitive compensation package; the atmosphere is family-oriented, hence a good work-life balance. Cons: Quite conservative on talent retention and career development of employees.” —Current employee
