    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!

    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

    Pros

    The people in my department are very good and passionate about what they do. Everyone is invested in working hard and doing the best job possible. We have good managers and guidance. Alternate work arrangement and a casual dress code are two other excellent perks.

    Cons

    My group works cross functionally with other groups who aren't as put together as we are. I do wish the pay was a little higher and we could get more than 1-2% salary increases each year.

    Pros

    omg, sooooo many! The best, I have to say, is the people I work with. People are cooperative, will take the time to really explain something to you (and not make you feel stupid), and genuinely want to do the right thing. And everything is transparent. The last company I worked at had more of a back-stabbing vibe (just by a few, but they polluted the overall atmosphere) and cliquish culture. This is just not the case at Baxter. Everyone acts like adults and is generous. My boss is more like a mentor. He is sort of hands off, but gives me the guidance and support I need.

    Cons

    The drive to Round Lake sucks. But, considering that that is the ONLY con I can come up with, it's worth the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. You do an awesome job of hiring top notch people.

    Pros

    Excellent salary for new positions, with large counter-offers accepted!

    Cons

    Too many group changes and shifts. Unstable feeling among the employees

    Advice to Management

    Less micromanaging and more hands-off guidance. Senior people managers really need people managing experience.
