I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

It is a good place to start a career in the industry. The benefits are good (they used to be better but they are still good). The salaries are great for the area. They are open to training you and have a lot of good in-house training available.

Cons

Management was not transparent with what their goals were. Beware: they slavishly follow the management trend of the month (and then apply it thoughtlessly, incorrectly or where it might not be appropriate). They give a lot of lip service to good job performance, sharing ideas, promoting from within, teamwork, ethics, but those are ignored when inconvenient. Outstanding performance is not rewarded. Whether you have work-life balance depends on whether your manager likes you or not.

Advice to Management

It is important that one is able to trust management and that employees are able to trust each other.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large company that allows/encourages movement.
    Opportunity for travel (if you desire).

    Cons

    Managers will tell you that family is important, but that's never the case. I was told that should the FDA show up for an audit (my wife was due to give birth to our first child), I would be expected to come in to manage the audit.

    They withhold raises for as long as possible. Performance reviews are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Support your top performers. Support their families. Stop putting results before people.
