    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Baxter full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to relocate and grow within a large multinational company. Very good benefits. Great level of security for people who are motivated to work.

    Cons

    At the local level (Medina, NY), there are MAJOR management issues in the service area. Many people in management positions lack the professional and people skills that their positions require, often degrading subordinates, and causing morale levels to be very low. The outcome of this is diminished product quality and unrealized goals. Corporate is a bit too detached to realize the issues at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Those who ARE effective and decent managers... keep up the good work and continue with the cultural direction of corporate. As for the others there is truly no hope as egos prevail...enjoy your paychecks now, as your days are numbered. Hopefully you will be replaced with better.

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

    Pros

    The place is good for time-off and no growth.

    Cons

    If you want to throw your career in the water, the Global IT department is right for you. I worked there for a year and a half with no appreciation for results, half-hearted commitments, worst diversity experience. Everytime a task came to the table, the PM and the Director used to always shuffle it to the contractors without providing adequate time for completion. The result job dissatisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    When you commit to people on project length be specific and truthful, as once committed to a project the individual has to decline other opportunities.
