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

    Pros

    Large company, well staffed, plenty of departments to move to.

    Cons

    Job is not challenging in the least, management treats employees as if they're slow and incompetent although a 2 year old can understand what needs to be done, takes a ton of time to move up, technical expertise/college education not taken into account.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down, you job isn't that hard. Our job is incredibly easy, give us the opportunity to do more and improve the manufacturing process.

    Pros

    The company wants to help.

    Cons

    They hire anybody who is weak-minded or deseparate for a job. They don't care about turnover, they'll just hire more temp's who they can dispose of later. Management is bad. They hire incompetent managers/supervisors who give no feedback other than when something goes wrong and ignore everything that has gone smoothly. Everybody tries their hardest to act like they are working and pass off their work to others.

    Advice to Management

    Come into the core areas and see what is happening on the floor because they have no idea and will not gown in if they had to save their own lives. To 5S everything and make you wear another pair of gloves and boot covers won't solve the problems.
