I have been working at BD full-time (More than 10 years)
In R&D, the environment is fairly laid back. Dress is casual and no one is micro-managing your hours. The instruments we work on are cutting edge and so are the technologies (for the most part). There is still maintenance on some legacy instruments that requires old development systems to be fired up here and there, but for the most part things are moving forward. C#, C++, VS 2013, TFS 2013, etc. Great place to sharpen your design and programming skills!
The software engineering group has become top heavy, and there is not a lot of room for advancement. Can be here 15 years before getting promoted to next level. Also, management will not hesitate to hire from the outside right into higher level positions, when there are people internally who could fill the roles.
Advice to Management
Allow employees who have paid their dues here to move up, rather that being so quick to hire from the outside.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BD (Hunt Valley, MD (US)) in March 2018.
The interview process was more of a conversation and not so much the typical questions. I was told that the person conducting the interview would call me personally to let me know whether or not I got the job. He did not. I got the obligatory email.
