    I have been working at CareFusion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good group of engineers to work with. Collaborative and supportive, relaxed, productive work environment. Lots of interesting products to work on. Every aspect of development located in one area so you are able to work with everyone locally involved in the product development.

    Cons

    Could manage projects better and more effectively. Try to complete multiple products at the same time so competing demands aren't coordinated as well as they could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on better coordination of product development and improve efficiency with realistic product introduction timelines.

    I worked at CareFusion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The company corners the market and always has customers
    - Good pay
    - Big company with lots of resources
    - Good benefits
    - Easy to stand out and do a good job

    Cons

    - Lots of people who only think about themselves and their career and won't lift a finger unless it directly affects them
    - Somewhat disorganized, not run like a tight ship
    - Many people don't care about the job, the product, or their coworkers
    - Brown nosing is rewarded as much or more than hard work
    - The good people often get let go and they keep the drones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the revolving door hiring and lay offs. Managers need to keep their employees for more time instead of always having to train new ones.
