    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and average salary .

    Cons

    Not likely to be promoted from within . Most workers have a higher education than many of their supervisors and some in management !

    Advice to Management

    Truth in promoting . If you promote and train people dedicated to the company instead of bringing in outsiders who are in turn trained by the people that they are hired to supervise (sic) ...it does not take a rocket scientist to conclude !

    Pros

    You get paid weekly and make a decent wage considering you do not have a college education. Work is not too hard.

    Cons

    The culture and attitudes of the people that work there make it a difficult place to work @ times. You have people that try to boss you around when they have no authority themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the culture of the people employed by Baxter. This makes the company look bad!

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, mission of company is good. Talented people among the best in the industry. Established company in stable industry.

    Cons

    Company is in a constant state of flux. Job cuts are frequent and sometimes seem to come from nowhere. Despite the constant HR talk about becoming a best place to work - after more than a decade I've yet to see any substantive evidence beyond talk.

    Advice to Management

    You've got good talent - make them feel good. Sometimes just telling someone you appreciate their contributions can go a long way.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area, potentially more in neighboring cities.
    Low cost of living in Marion.
    Stock option and 401K available.
    Yearly bonus based on site's performance.

    Cons

    Very little to do in Marion itself.
    People who have been here years have a "this is how things are done, just do it this way". Push against any type of culture change and improvements
    Overload workers with responsibilities as opposed to hiring more resources
