I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Promotions are available you just need to work hard for them and express interest. Extremely patient focused environment. Everyone knows why we come to work every day, to help deliver the best products to patients around the globe in a timely fashion. Salaries are comparable to other positions in the same industry.

Cons

Its a very large company so every improvement suggested, or innovation seems to take a long time to be put in place.

    Solid company, but too many re-orgs

    Pros

    Good benefits, stability, great customers, great colleagues,

    Cons

    Too top heavy in the management and way too many re-organizations. Still a "boys club" mentality in some areas despite a "Building Women Leaders" spark group. Growth for some is only feasible if you move to another group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing musical chairs and get to know all employees and recognize the value they bring!

    Good team, but HR overly involved and painful to work with.

    Former Intern - FDiP in Deerfield, IL
    Former Intern - FDiP in Deerfield, IL

    I worked at Baxter as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Life work balance. -- Rarely work over 50 hours a week.
    Low stress. -- Jobs rarely really get stressful due solely to the nature of work.
    Location (If with a family). -- Northern Illinois is a great place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Location (If young professional). -- As a young professional, Northern Illinois (Not Chicago) is not a great location to be in.
    Nature of Work. -- There is a lack of inherent excitement in the work. You can make it be there, but it does not come naturally.
    HR Staff. -- The HR staff was extremely overly involved, and hard to deal with in a mutually beneficial manner.
