    Pros

    Baxter is a fun place to work, there is flexibility in schedules, working with very smart people and challenging work to do. The separation with Baxalta will allow Baxter to shine!

    Cons

    Deerfield in the past was very formal, so excited that with the new company it is changing! An opportunity to be more casual in dress is awesome!

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for your emphasis on development, career advancement, cool products and great opportunities for the future!

    Quit acting on a few employees feed back of your subordinate engineers. Talk to them and find out for yourself how they behave in interacting with others. Sometimes, others pass on disinformation to make themselves look better.

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

    Pros

    I'm treated with respect, my opinion matters and I feel valued at work. Supportive of ideas. Great work/life balance options, covered parking, onsite workout facility and walking trail....and I get to wear jeans!

    Cons

    The traffic and the drive can be difficult because of the area - thankfully, we have a flexible ways of working which helps me avoid the traffic mess.

    Advice to Management

    You do a great job investing in your employees - through education that helps us align our goals.

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

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits, Great Supervisor and manager.

    Cons

    Stuck on the shift you start with, don't expect any big raises negotiate for what you can live with forever, they base your level of pecking order on your seniority not your knowledge or work ethic, Upper level managers are just yes men and women to corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Use common sense more often, goals should be achievable, give you managers and engineers a break and reason to stay don't ride them till they leave, realize we make medicine not autoparts.
