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

Pros

good cafeteria, a few good people. Ludwig trying to change culture for the better. Nice grounds. get your bonus every year- company grows due to growth OUTSIDE of U.S.

Cons

Toxic environment that marginalizes people with solid competencies! Old school way of thinking, lacks innovation. Many people act in unethical ways and continue to get promoted. This company will be stuck while others excel past Baxter. Ludwig trying to change culture to no avail.- all the good ole boys are keeping new ideas at bay. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!! I am so happy I left. The grass IS greener elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Embrace change. Embrace innovation. Reward the good and the ethical people. STOP promoting and keeping unethical, non-compliant people in leadership positions. Definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome- STOP THE CYCLE!!!

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Baxter as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pro of working at Baxter is that there are opportunities for those who have the initiative to apply their special talents.

    Cons

    The con is that communication between departments or individuals can be a bit challenging, which slows down tasks that involve groups.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to Management is to fix the communication problem, which unnecessarily stretches the timetable for projects and tasks.

    Mentorship is not organized, it is up to the employee to navigate the system and network.

    Advice to Management

    The "C" level should meet with senior management quarterly to get direct feedback.
