    I have been working at Baxter full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Top management is driving a huge transformation to the company culture, there is now investment in a real R&D pipeline, they are actively working to understand what the younger employees in the workforce expect and are taking concrete actions to accommodate those things.

    Cons

    There is still a lot of change happening and still some people unhappy with the change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making your aspirations about culture into concrete changes.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great company 2 years back but it's going downhill with childish policies and too much micro management for stuffs like shift allowance. Sometimes you feel like giving bugshis to company itself instead of arguing with HR or Managers for shift allowance.

    Cons

    Constant organizational changes. All Senior Managers are Bengalis who do partiality to North Indians. Transport is no longer free and charging Rs. 3000 per month. Shift allowance only if you go to office which is Rs. 300 only but they make you feel like they are giving Rs.3000. HRs are too arrogant and they would love every opportunity to deny you the shift allowance for silly reasons. Swipe-in and Swipe-out time is seen for shift allowance. No proper Business Titles. Sr. Specialist is equivalent to Associate Manager but Manager is given preference. Run by contractors than employees. Travel freeze because company is not doing well at present.

    Advice to Management

    Your aim to 'Best place to work' will not come true unless you stop comparing to top quartile companies. Stop the comparison and drive good things which no company is doing elsewhere.

    Make Transport free to employees and provide shift allowance even if someone is wfh. Else people who are near Whitefield only will get the benefit.

    I worked at Baxter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Except the Bonus which was 160%, nothing.

    Cons

    1. Employees are not treated fairly
    2. Contractors are treated as God, without them the company won't run
    3. HRs are arrogant and unavailable whenever required.
    4. The company operates worse than Service Based companies and there are no benefits to the employees
    5. Employee Salary is disclosed to Managers which is unfair and employees are assessed based on their salary and not technical capabilities.
    6. There is no expectation set during hiring but once employees join they expect employees to be available 24 x 7 and 365 days a year.
    7. There is no work-life balance for employees however Contractors enjoy all the benefits including Lunch Break, unlimited Snack Breaks, Walk Break, Dinner Breaks, Games and many others.

    Advice to Management

    Sack all the current leads and bring in fresh talents.
