I have been working at Baxter full-time

Pros

Hardworking and dedicated co-workers, good co-operation within study teams.

An environment of fear perpetrated by senior management. Constant employee turnover due to a hostile work environment. Lack of accountability on the part of senior management. Illogical decision making. Extreme micromanagement.

    Baxter took over and everything went downhill

    Former Employee - IT Intern in Vernon Hills, IL

    I worked at Baxter as an intern (less than an 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.
