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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, benefits, flex hours, holidays, work from home

    Cons

    Constant re-prioritization, lack of scheduling, upper management doesn't understand lower- level work and does not communicate before making unrealistic commitments, then don't compensate salaried employees for extra time they had to put in to compensate for their poor planning

    Advice to Management

    Consult with engineers about time commitments before making them. If you make engineers work 80 hours a week or more than 50 a week even, compensate them with SOMETHING. Comp time, Bax Bux, something! Don't just milk the cow for free with no limits. The cow will leave. Show some respect or compassion to your employees. Care about their development and provide opportunities for them to grow. Manage resource loading. Some people twiddle their thumbs at their desk while others are forced to do major parts of 2-3 projects etc. Promote people that are doing double the work than others in their level. Acknowledge you have a high manager turnover rate if you do in your department and reward the employee accordingly. Don't have them "prove themselves" to each new manager only to have that manager leave too and have to start all over again! Keep team morale up.
