Current Employee - Engineer I in Glendale, CA

I have been working at Baxter as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

chance to build up experience really fast for entry level
Fortune 500 name recognition
Friendly people
flexible time for salaried employee

Cons

overqualified but underpaid
little upper management recognition
high turnover rate

Advice to ManagementAdvice

HR need to see why the turnover rate is so high (pay on wrong end of the pay scale, poor benefits vs other pharmaceuticals). Organize team-building activities instead of having Sr managers and directors just sit in their offices all day.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (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.

    Cons

    Complex systems, high bureaucracy, slow to adapt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to simplify things. So many processes are burdened with non-value-added junk. Lean it out!
