I worked at Baxter as an intern for less than a year

Pros

I worked at Baxter for 12 weeks as an IT intern, it was a great experience. I met over 30 upper management employees for one on one coffee chats, no one at this company will deny another person 30 minutes of their time. The overall culture is down to earth people who enjoy helping others. The CIO knew all the IT interns by name at the end of the internship. I also received above average compensation and most interns receive full time offers.

Cons

The IT intern program is only in its 2nd year so there is little formal training and managers do not know how much work interns can handle so the first few weeks are very slow. The IT culture is also dominated by a huge age gap where most employees are over 40.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing what you are doing, just bring in younger talent and do not be afraid to hire entry level analysts from the outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let 6 sig be priority for a while. Invest in your future. Let some batches go out late if need be. Once the tools are second nature you will cut cycle times significantly anyway

    I worked at Baxter full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to advance in your professional career and to grow as a person and employee. Great compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Insufficient and sometimes late efforts by management to restructure the operational processes in order to improve the quality of customer service and products which as a result led to product recalls from the market and closing the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to original and unusual ideas from working at a lower level employees. To avoid methods of "trial and error" in creating projects leading to their frequent change.
