Solid company, but too many re-orgs

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

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!

    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.
