    I have been working at Baxter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Approachable co-workers and very knowledgable peers in the department. Opportunities to work on various different projects and positive rapport with management. Several resource groups and organizations available for service work and career building (Early Career Professionals, Toastmasters, etc.)

    Cons

    I came to this position from a research lab so I would like more opportunities to do investigative/feasibility lab studies with the goal of publishing my work as an engineer/scientist. It is possible at the company but more resources or outlets to do so would be helpful

    Advice to Management

    Extend more details and news regarding the outcome of important decisions and potential upcoming projects. Overall, I enjoy the interaction with management and feel they respect employees wishes and career aspirations as best they can.

    Pros

    Good company with great benefits, and bonuses. Overall the company has great direction and the previous culture has been shaken up with the new CEO and that has been good for company profits.

    Cons

    Organization I worked in was still not maturing from the culture change shake up. The organization still relied on outside vendors and already outsourced vendor to drive direction and management of key processes.

    Advice to Management

    Teams need to set the direction from a technical and process perspective to truly meet the goals of the organization.
