    Good place to grow a career

    Operations Analyst (Current Employee)
    Round Lake, IL

    ProsI believe Baxter has a way of finding the right spot for the talent. The pay + benefits are acceptable but I wouldn't call them extremely competitive.

    ConsDifficult to move vertically in some groups, reorganizing seems more common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to promote some of your young talent early in order to keep them dedicated to their roles.

    Great place to work

    Research Associate II (Current Employee)
    Round Lake, IL

    ProsAwesome benefits plan, education reimbursement (100% pre-grad and 80% post-grad), ability to cross train in other departments, summer hours (work monday thru friday at nine hours a day, half day on friday)

    ConsExcellent talent base makes it difficult to aquire a promotion (most employees have a masters degree or greater). Can't complain

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore mentoring needed

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Pay, Excellent Benefits

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
    Milwaukee, WI

    ProsI've worked in two different areas and both times I've been surounded by great people and have had my superiors eager to help me grow. The pay is good, but e benefits are great (although Obamacare has hurt them). I've been with the company for 9yrs so far and I'm not looking at leaving

    ConsStandard big corporate TPS reports garbage, but really not that big of a deal.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Like no other place in the world

    Whipping Boy (Current Employee)
    Bloomington, IN

    Prosmost of the people, lack of supervision, turnover (always meeting new friends),

    Consmost of the people, lack of supervision, turnover (always training new people)

    Advice to Senior Managementdo it different, lose the bad managers ('bout 50%) check with me before hireing anyone' becuase you don't know what you are doing.so many people getting moving bonus and sign on bonus for a two year stint. Change it to 5 years for the money you are dishing out. Grunts need to work 5 & 10 years to get 3 or 4 weeks vacation and newbies come in with 4 or 5 weeks use that plus more then leave. Again check with me before hiring. Plus keep it more american and don't hire pregnant women. If you want to throw away money throw it at the semi dedicated employees before more of them leave.
    Get rid of the mold not the good employees. Worst departments to work with because of attitude or lack of knowledge: RA TS QA Eng. Decent departments: SA Maint

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
