I worked at Baxter full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Strong company overall
Great people
Team members can get broad experience within a given role

Cons

Repressive and overly controlling management style from Vienna-led management team
Poor systems and processes do not support adequate compliance
Too much responsibility without proper support/mentoring for most team roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better training and improved/streamlined processes are needed, and a stronger US & Vienna leadership team is needed to turn things around.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    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.

    Pros

    Interesting to work with products.

    Leadership childish skills is ruining the company. There is no clear long term working management vision, things are going just because of inertia not because of the upper leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let smart people to take over your jobs...I know is not easy, you cannot let the money to somebody else...
