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.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities if you are willing to take on additional responsibilities outside of your job description.

    Cons

    Clueless management, they don't want to hear "no" and just want you to drink the koolaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people on the floor so you don't keep losing the best team players when they feel alienated.
