I worked at Baxter full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

-Coworkers were great, very supportive
-The company loves to hire from within, so it's easy to get promotions if you work hard

Cons

-There was a culture of fear. Fear of being reprimanded, fired, laid off, ect. This made it difficult for people to bring new ideas to the table or "rock the boat" in order to get things done or make improvements
-The work/life balance was way out of whack.
-Managers were not given proper authority to get anything done. This made even small tasks monumental to achieve, what with all the red tape.

    I worked at Baxter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great research experience, management left alone, no micro management, make your own time to work as long as you do your 8 hours a day.

    Cons

    Baxter took over and everything went downhill

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Money is not the answer to everything.

    Former Employee - Senior Technician in Buffalo Grove, IL

    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.
