    Pros

    Very interesting pharmaceutical R&D/QAQC facility with people who cared about the work they were doing.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, we were in closure mode when I was hired to manage the EHS end of the closure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop closing R&D & manufacturing facilities in the US. Keep our US personnel working before moving the development & manufacturing of pharmaceuticals out of this country.

    Former Employee - IT Intern in Vernon Hills, IL

    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.
