    Pros

    Over all good company to work for. Good pay, good beneifits, lots of training and safety is always key.

    Communication is poor. Not just across departments but also within each department itself.

    I worked at BD full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good facilities,close knit and friendly shopfloor workforce. Working conditions mostly good.

    Cons

    Riddled with cronyism,nepotism and favoritism. Notorious locally for bullying which almost seems to be condoned and many people leaders are promoted despite a history of bullying. Ethical policy in name only. Poor management decisions now coming home to roost. Stress almost epidemic on the shop floor.

    Advice to Management

    Back to basics,listen to people who know,clue,they don't sit in office.Stop cutting corners . Less people sitting behind computers all day,more actually making stuff.

    I worked at BD

    Pros

    Shift work pays well, thanks to bonuses. There is some company support if you are permanently employed, this did not apply for me as I was on a short term contract. Fellow workers, (apart from the backstabbers) were a good friendly helpful bunch.

    Cons

    Was unorganized, and managers /decision makers unable to make serious employee decisions.

    Advice to Management

    At times it is good to call in those beneath you and have a face to face discussion with regard to your job and company policies.
