Pros

good cafeteria, a few good people. Ludwig trying to change culture for the better. Nice grounds. get your bonus every year- company grows due to growth OUTSIDE of U.S.

Cons

Toxic environment that marginalizes people with solid competencies! Old school way of thinking, lacks innovation. Many people act in unethical ways and continue to get promoted. This company will be stuck while others excel past Baxter. Ludwig trying to change culture to no avail.- all the good ole boys are keeping new ideas at bay. DO NOT WORK HERE!!!! I am so happy I left. The grass IS greener elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Embrace change. Embrace innovation. Reward the good and the ethical people. STOP promoting and keeping unethical, non-compliant people in leadership positions. Definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome- STOP THE CYCLE!!!

    Pros

    Good money, lots of overtime and also lots of overtime incentives, extra money on top of your base pay and overtime to work more overtime. Customer service pays $40k per year, base pay.

    Cons

    Lots of mandatory overtime, no room for growth in certain depts. Lots of favoritism. Not very flexible, for work life balance. Take it or leave it approach in Customer service dept.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micromanagement.

    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 Management

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