Overall, it's a great company to work for. Although it is a massive company.

Pros

Great benefits including educational assistance. Good core values. The company recently acquired Baxa which was a great company too. Hopefully it will be a good thing in the long run. Both companies were known for quality products, and the integration should bring an even higher quality of customer service.

Cons

It is a big corporation. It's easy to get lost in it and sometimes difficult to get things done. Being in a regulated industry also doesn't help with the red tape.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Solve problems with critical thinking, not by ignoring them or throwing money at them. Try not to let the word "corporate" define your culture.

    Great company culture. Really embraces anyone's ideas for improvement. Asks front line employees for feedback often.

    Pros

    Great culture, a lot of mobility within the company

    Cons

    Decent salaries and benefits, but other companies do pay more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the salaries across the board to compete with other major players in the industry. The competitor's salaries are beginning to become a temptation in this market.

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

    Pros

    It is a good place to start a career in the industry. The benefits are good (they used to be better but they are still good). The salaries are great for the area. They are open to training you and have a lot of good in-house training available.

    Cons

    Management was not transparent with what their goals were. Beware: they slavishly follow the management trend of the month (and then apply it thoughtlessly, incorrectly or where it might not be appropriate). They give a lot of lip service to good job performance, sharing ideas, promoting from within, teamwork, ethics, but those are ignored when inconvenient. Outstanding performance is not rewarded. Whether you have work-life balance depends on whether your manager likes you or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important that one is able to trust management and that employees are able to trust each other.
