    Pros

    Baxter Healthcare is involved with some very inovative therapies like flu vaccinations which the demand is expected to grow significantly in the next 5 years. There are also therapies in the pipeline for alzheimers in the works.

    Cons

    Baxter does not seem to have very many high margin products in its portfolio.

    Pros

    Financially stable, good benefits and worklife balance. Talented people throughout organization.
    Vast resources, strong belief in safety and quality control

    Cons

    The company innovates from outside by purchasing companies and technology instead of taking advantage of their employees vast knowledge and abilities. Management decisions are often kept secret and information is not shared freely in terms of organizational goals and research pipeline which creates an unpleasant political atmosphere. To survive here, you need lots of friends in management to tell you what is going on otherwise what you don't know will hurt you.

    Advice to Management

    Share your true vision and scientific goals with your employees so that the atmosphere can be collaborative and everyone can work towards a common goal. If the vision and goals are only known by a few a divisive/ diminishing culture is created/ Your employees have great ideas we read and know our field, utlize us for innovation.
