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

    Pros

    Baxter has an awesome culture. I love coming to work knowing the fact that everyone is engaged in helping produce quality life saving products, whether it is the Safety department, Planning, or Manufacturing; everyone has a critical role.

    The leadership/management team is top notch and one of a kind. I've worked for a few biotech companies in the past, and Baxter greatly surpasses all of them. If you want to experience a world class company, come to Baxter and start your career.

    The benefits package is highly competitive! Medical, dental, 401k, vision, employee assistance, employee discounts, tuition reimbursement, and many more.

    Cons

    I don't think there are any cons in this place. Like any other business, there are challenges and milestones to achieve but Baxter reaches and excels in those avenues.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for giving the opportunity for employees to grow and succeed! Without the proper leadership, Baxter will not be where we are today.
