    I worked at Baxter full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many dedicated people who cared about what they do

    Cons

    People in management are too busy trying to get promoted to the next level to worry about improving the plant

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with creating new ideas and programs and just roll up your sleeves and do some actual work

    Pros

    Baxter is committed to training and career development. If you live near a facility or are willing to relocate, this company is worth looking at. With the diversity in departments and divisions, if one area doesn't work for you there is usually another that you could move into to continue your career path.

    Cons

    Given the number of employees this company has, it does not have a large volume of alternate work situations (flex hours. job share, work from home).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider extending hiring requirements to include an option for a combination of education and experience rather than just limiting positions strictly to those individuals with a bachelors degree or higher.
