Horrible Place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL

ProsGlobal Pharma/Medical Device Company with a very big presence in key therapy and drug areas. Nice campus (Deerfield, IL), Cafeteria.

ConsThe corporate HQ is known to be very dry, old, and grey...you can say this about the people there also. Moving up the ladder is tough, unless you fall in a certain category and also inner circle. There is lack of leadership that actually cares about people development and movement. Lot of the departments are working in their own little areas and do not talk to the other counterparts from differente divisions. Corporate has no control over its other sites as much, especially with IT.

Advice to Senior ManagementBaxter really needs to step up its game when it comes to people development, marketing their drugs in key countries, and of course learning from their mistakes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Mixed experience. Truly Global business with outdated approach to work/life balance
