    Pros

    The pay and benefits are excellent for the area.

    Cons

    The company is into diversity and inclusion to the point they hire or promote people based solely on race and gender.
    Management does not listen to the ideas or concerns of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who are doing the work and hire based on skill and ability and less on the applicant's ability to make Baxter appear to be a diverse organization.
