    Pros

    tons of opportunities for career development (if you are working in Northern IL); large networking opportunity; great people to work with

    Cons

    Extremely large company- little communication; and change is very slow and sloppy; Baxter seems to often value outside applicants from pharmaceuticals over internal applicants; plants located in not the best places

    Pros

    Company has good values and purposes. It provides work life balance and could be rewarding. Pretty good pay and benefits. People are nice for the most part.

    Cons

    The company is slow to adapt new things. It is very conservative and rightfully so, but for people with desire to stay at the tech edge the place may feel stagnant. There are many incompetent IT managers who have nothing to do with technology and seem more like clerks than technology leaders. As a result business has little trust in internal IT staff and prefers to outsource projects to consulting firms.

    Advice to Management

    Please look carefully at IT managers you hire and ask yourself a question - would you want to be led by that manager if you were part of that manager's team. Please improve communication and transparency

    Pros

    good company structure that prevents errors
    good healthy atmosphere
    general sense that you're doing something good for people

    Cons

    too much bureaucracy
    lots of company politics, but that's every almost company
    they are not very nice to temporary workers

    Advice to Management

    hire more young people.
    make it easier for engineers to make a change, because they often run into meaningless clerical obstacles. A small change requires 4-6 people from different departments to approve, this is not always efficient. This creates a delay in improvement.

    Pros

    The people are just rediculously nice. I've worked at places before that are cliquish, and that is not the case here. Also nice is that you are doing good work for the betterment of mankind :-). Also, even though Baxter is in major flux right now, everything's been transparent and you get the feeling that people higher up than you (I'm pretty low) care about you.

    Cons

    Things move s l o w l y because Baxter is so big.

  11. A very rewarding experience helping in healthacre.
