      Favoritism Makes Advancement an UNFAIR process in RI

      Pros

      good overall culture. organization cares about employees and work/life balance

      Cons

      The BD office in RI was formerly CR Bard (BD acquired BARD). The legacy BARD leadership is rife with politics and favoritism. The favoritism in R&D is barely veiled and Program Managers are put on a pedestal. First, they only work a single project at a time (so their "Project Managers") and literally add NO value in that 1 project. They have nothing to fear up on the pedestal though. The R&D leadership in the RI office stuck in this rut with no clear exit strategy (applies to Director level and above)

      Pros

      Great environment and friendly workers. The work pace is not fast and allow you to take a breath. Very good culture , work/life balance is the highly appreciated there

      Cons

      Too many projects with little resources, management sometimes cant bring additional people to support the project. It takes forever to hire people at BD and that slow process is affecting the growth of the company.

      Pros

      Being associated with the organization for almost 10 years. Best organization in my career ( have worked with 4 other organization beside BD) . You feel respected, heard and given ample opportunities to prove your worth. Well-designed rewards & recognition platform for exceptional and consistent performers by onshore as well as offshore leadership. Collaborative management and easily approachable. Ample opportunities to learn and enhance skill set. Well-designed Induction program helping new joiners to understand on what all BUs & products the center is working. Flexible work hours help in managing work life balance. Leaves/ holidays/ employee engagement activities are all very well managed and has never faced any issue. Emphasis on employee individual professional growth and all support is provided for same. Dedicated groups focusing to support women professional development and building their pipeline. Continuous sessions for training people to enhance their leadership / managerial skills. I have learned a lot here which helped in succeeding professionally and personally.
