    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and great place to work. Generous pay and benefits. New ceo has some good ideas, but there is definitely bias towards young career professionals.

    Cons

    More and more outsourcing, less opportunity to advance. Development focus is on kids right out of college. Suspect this company wont be around much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Human capital is a valuable resource. Don't throw it away so easily

    Facility is located really far from civilization and unhealthy processed food in the cafeteria.
