    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, opportunities for advancement if you are willing to travel and relocate. The biggest pro is. This company truly does save lives.

    Cons

    Can get hectic and stressful, constant change, a lot of expectations, very repetitive, dealing with the general public. Can only advance so far at the same center.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to work your employees to the point of burnout. Always lead by example and treat staff respectfully.

    Pros

    Good benefits and easy going atmosphere. The people are good to work with.

    Cons

    Tight schedules make for many extra hours and you don't get much recognition for the long hours.

    Let the design team make a reasonable schedule to complete project.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, highly regarded in the global pharmaceutical industry. Pay is excellent as well as benefits for health and investment plans.

    Cons

    Long hours, not enough upper management engagement. Upper management needs to be more engaging with individuals working under them.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees are happy doing there jobs on a daily basis. Establishing a good cultural fit and relationship would help.

    I worked at Baxter full-time

    Pros

    Can be fun at times, pay and benefits package is very competitive. Relaxed dress code.

    Cons

    Company decisions ordered from home office are not in touch with the reality of the work flow and common practices. Outsourcing studies to find more "efficient" ways to save money tends to backfire in the long run, a lesson that Baxter fails to learn over and over. High turnover of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your grunts. They know best.

    Pros

    Great benefits, teams, people and atmosphere.
    Good manager to employee communication!
    Good VP to employee communication.
    Fantastic employee stock options.

    Cons

    Baxter is going through a split right now so everything is uncertain. There have been a lot of layoffs an department reorgs which makes everyone nervous.

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking for new and better. I'm of a mind if it isn't broke don't fix it. There's no need to reinvent the wheel in a pharma company.

    Can't think of a single pro for being a contractor at Baxter.

    Cons

    No PTO, contractors are told to not ask questions, no one has any real career ambitions here. Be prepared to be mistreated.

    Old school technology, culture, and idealogy

    Pros

    The employee stock purchase program is very good!! My department allows us to work from home multiple times per week. Also some team members are allowed to work from other Baxter offices if needed to accommodate their schedule.

    Cons

    Offices are far north. A lot of employees. It might be easy to get lost in the crowd it is imperative to have a manager/team that's fosters your development.

    Advice to Management

    Time to offer some older employees packages to retire!
