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

Pros

Baxter is committed to training and career development. If you live near a facility or are willing to relocate, this company is worth looking at. With the diversity in departments and divisions, if one area doesn't work for you there is usually another that you could move into to continue your career path.

Cons

Given the number of employees this company has, it does not have a large volume of alternate work situations (flex hours. job share, work from home).

Advice to Management

Consider extending hiring requirements to include an option for a combination of education and experience rather than just limiting positions strictly to those individuals with a bachelors degree or higher.

    "Highly hierarchical environment"

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance, some flexibility, decent salary

    Cons

    No real opportunity for career advancement for many employees; mediocre, complacent and conforming employees are favored over true and deserving talent. Senior management has absolutely minimal or no ability to effectively lead its people and feels threatened by anyone who is sharp enough to recognize it, which often results in retaliation against such person.

    Advice to Management

    Reward (when warranted) and listen to your employees.. Retain true talent and get rid of dead wood. Be accountable for your actions. There are some great employees at Baxter, but most of them eventually leave and take their skills and dedication to competitors. Time to reevaluate this culture.

    Pros

    Nice people, you help to make products that could save someone's life.

    Cons

    Upper management does not practice vital behaviors. They just keep adding responsibilities, without an increase. Do not offer training as they should and do not take care of the good employees. The goof-offs are the ones that get the promotions not the people that do the work.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employee pool and get rid of the ones that do not work and reward the ones that do.
