    Pros

    Many dedicated people who cared about what they do

    Cons

    People in management are too busy trying to get promoted to the next level to worry about improving the plant

    Stop with creating new ideas and programs and just roll up your sleeves and do some actual work

    "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.
