    Current Contractor - Engineer I in Glendale, CA

    I have been working at Baxter as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    chance to build up experience really fast for entry level
    Fortune 500 name recognition
    Friendly people
    flexible time for salaried employee

    Cons

    overqualified but underpaid
    little upper management recognition
    high turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR need to see why the turnover rate is so high (pay on wrong end of the pay scale, poor benefits vs other pharmaceuticals). Organize team-building activities instead of having Sr managers and directors just sit in their offices all day.
