Becton Dickinson (NYSE:BDX) touts itself as being a global business that is advancing the world of health. People who work for BD can expect to contribute to advancing the world of health and saving and improving lives, according to its Glassdoor profile.
Here’s what current and former employees have to say:
“Pros: I regard BD as BDU (BD University) because it is a very dynamic, agile and constantly changing company with a very long history. Sometimes changes are painful, chaotic, and overwhelming. But after the dust has settled, most of the changes look very correct, timely and necessary. Just catching up with these changes is a very rewarding experience that helps me in my career and professional development. A challenging growth environment, very competitive but rewarding to move forward. Cons: Growth opportunities in remote locations are limited; sometimes very bureaucratic; promotion can be a very slow process; the compensation is very average.” ––Current employee
“Pros: Work-life balance; decent pay; good benefits; job security. Cons: A little unorganized; learning curve is pretty high if you have had no previous medical technology experience.” ––Current employee
“Pros: Benefits; vacation and sick time are generous; friendly, helpful colleagues. Cons: Slow to get projects started/completed; some in the same roles for years are resistant to change.” ––Former employee
“Pros: Treated with respect and appreciation; compensated well with good benefits; good coworkers. Cons: Pressure, as in all manufacturing, to make production; hours could be extensive to meet deadlines (compensated with overtime).” ––Former employee
