I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

In Parkinson's first 5 years, there were tremendous opportunities to make an impact at all levels. The culture was open and teamwork was strong.
Today there some recent changes have brought discipline and occasionally improved decision making. Although career opportunities are scarce, fewer weak people are being promoted.
Throughout, the company makes products that matter to providers and patients. The company believes in doing the right thing.

Cons

Career opportunities have become rare and only open to those who combine talent with political connections and savvy. While the BioScience pipeline has promise, many programs are longshots and/or underfunded. There is literally nothing in the Medical Products pipeline other than home hemodialysis. Executive management is not proficient at building organizational capabilities. Baxter has always had a core competency in manufacturing. Parkinson has added no competencies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The implementation of PowerUp has been lackluster. Although going full speed would be overly disruptive, going faster would be welcomed by most.
Figure out what Baxter's core competency is and invest in it.
Organizational structure forces conflict between US/Global and non-US groups. It would be better to integrate global and regional teams and have more competition between product teams.

    Pros

    Pay, foot in the door of pharma. Learn about the basics of the industry and meet new people.

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism and guidance from management. Female dominated. If you work hard you may or may not get recognized. Management is inexperienced and it shows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your team! Motivate your team! Don't show favoritism! Provide equal opportunity for career advancement and special projects!
