Lots of unhappy people

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.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work atmosphere, the people, and the benefits. There are good opportunities for advancement and moving nationally and/or globally if you are willing to work.

    Cons

    As with many large companies, it is possible to become lost as just another worker. Sometimes moving up is more difficult than it would seem. There are more "hoops" to jump through than you may have in a smaller company. You have to balance what fits for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to Managers and Directors when it comes to promoting people to keep good quality people within the company.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and get exposed to new things.

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are frustrating. Often times employees start their career at Baxter, leave for a few years to make more money, then come back as managers to make what they are worth.
