Former Employee - Vice President in Deerfield, IL

I worked at Baxter full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Fairly good reputation. Some very good products and mediocre pipeline. Pays above average.

Cons

HR (Bioscience) is lacking professionalism and respect. Poorly functioning teams throughout organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to resist promoting people who are unable to lead. Unfortunately I witnessed may promotions based on ability to "kiss up" versus real talent.

    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.

    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.
