    Pros

    Baxalta was a great stepping stone into the work force right out of college. The work was challenging and there was steady career growth.

    Cons

    Growth became stagnant after a while without a clear pathway to advance. Management did little to look out for employee's goals.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees better or you will continue to lose good talent.

    I worked at Baxalta full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, no hierarchy view of management and very easy to collaborate. Work like balance is awesome, management encourages employees to work from home and not work a full 8 hour day if not required.

    Cons

    Location is a bit far from the city, but other than that I loved working for Baxalta when it was it's own company.

    I worked at Baxalta full-time

    Pros

    World class company. At the forefront of innovation in the bio-science and medical devices field.

    Cons

    Strict adherence to conformity for its employees.
    (At the time I left the company was in the process of being sold to a foreign company - Shire - therefore, there was a feeling of uncertainty and tension in the air, making the feelings of rigidity more strongly felt.)

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees more freedom for self direction but still maintain tactfully set boundaries.

    They give you the chance to learn and getting promoted to Tech. III is fairly easy once you get qualified to work on all the steps of the process. Beyond Tech. III is difficult because there are very limited positions.
