    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Continued training.

    Cons

    The company cares more about the shareholders than the employees. Will cut budget everywhere even if it means outsourcing to different country some of the job functions.

    Advice to Management

    To be considered "great place to work for" you must care about the employees future. Most employees are loyal and dedicated, but when you outsource their job and lose their jobs feels like you betrayed those employees.
