    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Overall there is low stress and very little overtime required. There are a few good managers, and if you are lucky enough to work for one, then it's not a bad place.

    Cons

    Poor strategic decisions by management. A lack of interesting technical work, since most work is now outsourced. Employees are not valued, so overall morale is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees are your greatest asset, so treat them as such.
