    I have been working at Baxter full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, steady hours, usually overtime availability. They are driven to safety standards above most others. They take it quite seriously.

    Cons

    Employees are an after thought. Retirement benefits are not what they used to be. They seem to think once you walk through the door you're stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your people. Once the old generation of pension employees are gone, good luck keeping any decent workers.

    I worked at Baxter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The managers actually care. It's a rare quality to find today. They worked with me during one of the hardest times of my life. I will be forever grateful to them. The department overall is well run and they focus on retention. Many employees have been there more than 5 years.

    Cons

    Training could be more organized but it is not poor.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
