    Pros

    Person can gain great experience working on projects. Working on a small team allows each person to learn and contribute. The people working here are talented, committed and dedicated to the product.

    Cons

    This facility began years ago as a start-up software product and that mentality remains even after 2 acquisitions from larger companies. Working conditions are chaotic. Projects aren't planned well in advance making success difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are engineers that have been promoted and should receive additional training in solid business management practices.

    Baxter is a well established market leader with a lot of smart, talented employees. There are opportunities there if you are able to make a name for yourself and take ownership of your development.
