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

    Pros

    Great company benefits.

    Cons

    The long term employees seem to have a lock on decision making and career advancement/promotions or hold on to their jobs for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Change the corporate culture to clean out some of the old ideas that long-time employees hang on to. "The Baxter Way" was used so many times which meant they were not open to considering new, fresh ways look at a project/problem.

    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.

    Pros

    The Cleveland, MS plant is NOT corporate America. It is a great family.

    Advice to Management

    Best way to understand the work role on the floor is to perform it. Observations help, but doing the job once in awhile will help you to understand problems causing non-conformances.

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

    Pros

    High Pay

    Benefits

    Friendly Co-Worker

    Great Team Support

    If temp for 6 months, you will be hire into the team as full time employee.

    Cons

    Force Mandatory Saturday for past few months (Not sure they will stop it because they are still doing it till this day base on the Facebook North Cove Page -2017- ),

    Un-Friendly Co-worker,

    Poor HR Team,

    Poor Management,

    Many Change which makes your life harder,

    New machine to force you to work faster but will always hurt you and have lots of down time,

    Company may (mostly a lot) not listen to you if you are unable to work,

    More new machine = More down times = More mandatory Saturday = No times off,

    New Supervisor = Down times = Confuse among others = No one know what is going on,

    Many people quit which cause stressful for many employees trying to run one lines.

    Advice to Management

    Add temp staffing to 1st shift to fix missing employee slots.

    Be a better management to support your employee since they are not robot.

    They need real moral support. Not some video support and say it. Just do it. Be there and really help them.

    Don't remove their benefits of being a human being. They are like you and me. When they have health problem, don't punish them by remove what they need to stay working.

    Give them what they want. Don't take it away to ruin their life. You are already make everyone life hard already. Don't try to make it even more harder by froze their PTO and changing the point system.
