    I worked at Baxter (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very proud to have worked for a company that makes a difference in the world. You feel good at the end of the day knowing you are making a difference. The benefit package is above average. You learn quickly based upon your engagement. If you are a great multitasker this is the place for you.

    Cons

    There is favoritism amongst senior leadership. There leaders in place that will delegate their work on to you when there is more work of your own to complete. Can be a high stress position with little appreciation shown.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to empower and lead by example. There are good ones on the ship, on the other hand that there are two faced individuals at the helm

    Pros

    Working toward a new culture of flexibility and trust.

    Cons

    Slow to change, company bogged down with corporate red-tape and policies. Constant grumbling about new flexible environment from leadership - though they are forced to embrace the new culture.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO working to improve culture but speaking up to change things is still considered a no no - more leadership roles need to change to fix this culture.
