    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable industry, healthcare, clean facilities, professional co workers.

    Cons

    This company has really changed in the 10 years I have been here. There is little sense of community any longer. After the split, the direction of to the company is uncertain. Work life balance is non existent with the head of the company warning us of reduction in staff to fit the new business model.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees for the most part have been dedicated long term professionals. They are the number one asset for this and any business. Treat them with the respect and consideration they deserve.

    Pros

    Flexible Telecommute schedule. Summer hours during summer months.

    Offered same salary for my promotion that was offered to a co worker 3 years prior. Hard to get tuition reimbursement for MBA but easy for 50 year olds to get undergrad paid for

    Advice to Management

    Be aggressive to HR. Provide some motivation.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. 4/10 work week was great.

    Cons

    Management didn't care about employees. NCR system targets employees majority of time as root cause- bad for morale.

    I worked at Baxter (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Company is always focused on VIP (Value Improvement Program) which drives performance efficiency and reduces waste - Competent, hard working, and well educated employees have a decent opportunity to advance their careers at Baxter

    Cons

    - Heath care benefits are getting increasingly costly to employees; but that's everywhere - Not sure if spinoff (Baxalta) is good or bad for Baxter's future.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue focus on VIP to drive process efficiency and reduce waster - Put the extra effort to notice those employees that put the extra time and effort to do a good job and help them advance their careers
