    I worked at Baxter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some great people, flexibility on working remotely, fair salary

    Cons

    You are just a number in the scheme of things. No matter how long you've been there. Layoffs are inevitable and once you reach a certain salary level, you will be cut and they will outsource your position or will rehire at a much lower salary level.

    Advice to Management

    practice what you preach and keep loyal employees that have stuck with you through the ups and downs. Stop putting families in turmoil by sudden lay-offs. Give severance packages or give employees notice before terminating.
