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

Pros

Rich history of innovation, and has a great mix of different products. Benefits are good and the culture is very open/family friendly.

Cons

Salaries are not on par with what other medical companies seem to offer. Sometimes the company botches product launches & they have over paid for many companies they have purchased.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to be more realistic with the demands they place on the lower level employees. The employees work as well as they can within the confines of the law, FDA regulations and what materials are provided to their employees. The company can't always raise price and expect customers will stay loyal.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Secure, well established, clean reputation.

    Cons

    Slow to change or innovate. Run by numbers vs a vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate vs Observe. Do not have so many layers of management that managers administrate versus lead.
