I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Everyone is very nice, and the culture is very relaxed. Easy to move around internally.

Cons

Compensation is well below market. No one will ever be fired for any mistake of any kind. On the one hand that is very comforting for employees, but you end up with a lot of Director/Vp level people that have been there forever and have been entirely incompetent forever.

Advice to Management

Pay people what they are worth,and have the guts to clean out those who are poor performers.

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

    Pros

    flexibility is good, great pay and benefits, they really do care about providing a great working environment.

    Cons

    processes are insanely complicated, can be customized too much. Its hard enough to build good products without the overhead, and I mean overhead of the internal processes. never has it taken so much work to accomplish so little.

    Advice to Management

    decide on a configuration management/change process, and make it universal. Make simple, lean processes and require everyone to follow them including remote plants, remote engineering, other countries and regions, etc.
