    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.

    Pros

    Very Ethical staff, great work environment, strive for getting it right and delivering value to customers

    Cons

    Large company and being able to have alignment across the globe is difficult. Many opinions from folks that did it different at other companies come in and implement what they think is a better idea and when not based on data and monitored....doesn't result in a win and has to be corrected.

    Advice to Management

    Get the ground truth, don't base decision on what you did 10 or 20 years ago, get the data and facts today. Communicate clearly about what adds value.
