    I have been working at BD full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work life balance; high support for talent; promoter of inclusion and diversity. business people makes you feel appreciated and pays attention to legal advise. Great colleagues to work with and educative to closely work with business to make sure they achieve their goals while making sure legal issues are well addressed.

    Cons

    Lengthy decision making process and a complex matrix system; Might get busy towards fiscal year ends and beginnings. Exciting but sometimes tiring role as it covers a broad range of business units as well as law matters.

  3. "No balance. Total work. Too tired to play. Push push push. Get paid well but die early."

    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at BD full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits (Like when you die so young of stress related illness) but you are taxed. There are mental health first aiders So that must be an excellent benefit. Mmmmmmmm.

    Cons

    Long hours no overtime given. Multiple projects with a load more on the horizon. Mistakes will happen. Patients will die. Selfless sales people. Tired all the time. Point of exhaustion. Keeping senior managers pockets lined with silver and gold. On the edge of breaking physically and mentally. Pressure cooker environment. Dog eat dog a bit like the ridiculous “the apprentice” show. I cant wait to be fired.

    Advice to Management

    Give a lot. Learn a lot. Listen. Give the team a break. Go “electronic” reduce paperwork and let people be themselves. “Mr Robot”
