I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

flexibility is good, great pay and benefits, they really do care about providing a great working environment.

Cons

processes are insanely complicated, can be customized too much. Its hard enough to build good products without the overhead, and I mean overhead of the internal processes. never has it taken so much work to accomplish so little.

Advice to Management

decide on a configuration management/change process, and make it universal. Make simple, lean processes and require everyone to follow them including remote plants, remote engineering, other countries and regions, etc.
