    Pros

    I've gained a lot of valuable experience. Was able to be hired right out of school and feel welcomed in the company.

    Cons

    Lots of people seem to leave the company. Reorganization within the company seems to occur often. Not very good management when I first started here, but getting better.

    Advice to Management

    Give recognition where it is due. Some smaller groups within the company seem to not be recognized for all they do, eventhough they are vital to the success of the company.

    Pros

    Gambro maintained a consistent, performance driven culture. There were always high growth expectations that were, at times, not in line with market growth. The verdict is still out as to how the purchase of Gambro by Baxter will affect the Gambro business. Baxter is a large corporation and it can be easy for employees to get lost in the shuffle. Theoretically, professional development and growth should improve for Gambro employees based on the size and opportunities available at Baxter.

    Cons

    Lack of employee personal and professional development. (In all fairness, this was addressed in a positive manner during 2012 - 2014 and should improve as a Baxter company.)

    Advice to Management

    Baxter should be transparent with all employees as to their recruitment process for senior positions. Leadership positions have been filled internally without job descriptions or postings. This creates a negative blemish on the corporate culture.

    Pros

    Person can gain great experience working on projects. Working on a small team allows each person to learn and contribute. The people working here are talented, committed and dedicated to the product.

    Cons

    This facility began years ago as a start-up software product and that mentality remains even after 2 acquisitions from larger companies. Working conditions are chaotic. Projects aren't planned well in advance making success difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are engineers that have been promoted and should receive additional training in solid business management practices.
