I worked at BD full-time (Less than a year)
It's a great place for junior people to start their career and see how a large company works. You can meet different people with diverse background.
My manager and team members were all really nice in person and supportive in work. My team provided me great resources to develop and improve my professional skills. They sent me to conferences and sponsored me for training courses as I asked for.
Besides, the headquarter campus at Franklin Lakes is spacious, organized, and beautiful, like a museum. I was totally fascinated by the campus when interviewed with BD. The cafeteria is great, they have outdoor bbq in summer and once I had lobster roll there.
The commute is hard if you don't live close by. No public transportation near the campus.
The company is large, so sometimes you have to go through a series of standard process to get things done, for example, some IT difficulties, which might take longer than just reaching out to a specific person and get problems solved.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Franklin Lakes, NJ (US)) in November 2017.
I had a phone interview first and then was asked to come in. I went in for an in-person interview, and two or three people (mostly engineers, I gathered) interviewed me at a time for one hour each. They asked challenging questions such as how a mechanical pencil works and giving me scenarios I might find on a job and how I would handle it. They were really trying to see how I thought through some of these things. I struggled through a lot of it.
