Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Deerfield, IL
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Deerfield, IL

I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The company has many great products.
Senior leaders are willing to invest in acquisitions for new products and technologies.
Company is financially stable and sound.
Good work life balance.

Cons

Limited ability to develop products in-house. R&D process is slow to non-existent.
Limited upward mobility unless you are inner circle.
Few senior leaders able or willing to make a decision by themselves, almost always seek group thought/agreement before moving forward.
Limited career development plan. Talking points sounds good, but an actual plan clearly communicated to the employees would be nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is ok to make decisions based on the information at hand. Not all decisions need to be analyzed to death, then agreed upon by a group.
Invest in your employee's development, encourage mid-level managers to train and cultivate young talent, encourage promotion from within the company rather than bringing in outside people.
