    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top management is driving a huge transformation to the company culture, there is now investment in a real R&D pipeline, they are actively working to understand what the younger employees in the workforce expect and are taking concrete actions to accommodate those things.

    Cons

    There is still a lot of change happening and still some people unhappy with the change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making your aspirations about culture into concrete changes.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, good opportunities for advancement, depending on what department you sit in and how invested your manager is.

    Cons

    Decision-making is sloooooooow. The number of hoops you have to jump through to get anything accomplished is ridiculous. The company could be so much greater if they would stop rehashing the same fruitless exercises year after year and listen to new and innovative ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold. Try new things. Fall forward.

        Pros

        Great people. Great benefits. Competitive pay.

        Cons

        Too big to change. So much variance and non standardization hurts efficiency. People are too stuck in "we've always done it this way".

        Advice to Management

        Stop changing everything at one time and before you can get used to it, it changes again.
