Former Contractor - Financial Analyst in Chicago, IL
Former Contractor - Financial Analyst in Chicago, IL

I worked at Baxter as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

Great learning experience.
Boosted my career confidence.
Decent office.

Cons

Unrealistic expectations from a contract employee. They expected a contract employee to know everything and be an expert on their process from Day 1. Even asking an simple question to a colleague was looked down upon. The manager had hired and let go three contractors in a span of six months for my role.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat contract employees with more courtesy and respect.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Flexibility with hours and opportunity to work at home once per week
    -Great benefits

    Cons

    -No accountability and follow through
    -Poor training and lack of mentorship
    -Management team is far removed from operations, therefore, each staff member has to defend for himself/herself or count on each other to get the job done
    -No leadership/direction from the management team
    -No consistency
    -Work/life balance is being jeopardized as each team member is expected to take on additional projects and stay on top of the day to day work. Too many people doing projects and not enough people to cover the day to day work.
    -No room for advancement
    -No empowerment to perform the job that has been requested of the staff
