    Easy to get lost in the shuffle given the amount of employees

    I have been working at Baxter full-time

    Pros

    -The plant is going through some reorg, but hopefully for the better
    -A lot of openings, so good for career advancement
    -Opportunity to learn a lot of different things
    -Decent benefits
    -Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    -Annual raises are less than market
    -Parking
    -Lunch room is too small
    -Not enough meeting rooms
    -No chewing gum
    -No eating at your desk

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Spend less time on "Gemba" Walks and 5S-ing everything, and focus more on the work environment. At the end of the day, employees are what keeps the plant running and profitable.
    -Work on talent retention tactics. In the past year or so, we've lost too many people in decision-making roles to competitors
    -Reward your employees more for hitting milestones, etc
    -Work on pest control procedures, so that employees have the flexibility of eating at their desk. Not everyone has the luxury of taking 2 hour lunches in the cafeteria
    -"Trim the fat" - There are way too many non-exempt employees that take advantage of the system. Very discouraging and demoralizing to work hard day in and day out, only to see your fellow colleagues not work as hard and milk the overtime and lunch clock system. Ask yourself, Why work hard throughout the day, when I can just go at a snail pace and then stay for overtime or dump my work on an exempt employee?
