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

Pros

Rich history of innovation, and has a great mix of different products. Benefits are good and the culture is very open/family friendly.

Cons

Salaries are not on par with what other medical companies seem to offer. Sometimes the company botches product launches & they have over paid for many companies they have purchased.

Advice to Management

They need to be more realistic with the demands they place on the lower level employees. The employees work as well as they can within the confines of the law, FDA regulations and what materials are provided to their employees. The company can't always raise price and expect customers will stay loyal.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to simplify things. So many processes are burdened with non-value-added junk. Lean it out!
