    I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits , Location-commute, not much else

    Cons

    Everything else, cliques have been in play for years and new employees are literally being bullied and harassed like grade school. This is supported by managers and HR so no way out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus your efforts on performance rather than relationships. Make an example of how this won't be tolerated to stop it in its tracks. Lack of action long term will ruin your reputation as a great employer.
