    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good products and brand perception in the minds of end users. For rest, please continue to read

    Cons

    1. Too many processes and if miss out on any thing, no exception 2. For everything deadlines 3. Sales Force SFE drives the culture. 5 calls perday, calls to be planned well in advance in SFE. For any reason the doctor you planned to meet in the SFE, you don't meeting for some reason and you meet other doctors, the call is not considered and your call average get lower. 4. In SFE, you need to upload your... secondry sales plan and achievement. You may loose the incentive for not uploading properly 5. Within 2 working days you need to report in SFE your calls or else you won't be eligible to get the expenses for that day where in you missed reporting the call. You need to send SFE report with your expenses claims within 30 days, beyond that forget your claims. Too much cost cutting, 425 Rs is the capping per day in station which includes travel in the city, food and everything. 6. If you are planning to conduct CME to engage your customers, for raising grants you have to go through various processes, applications and forms. Ultimately you will loose interest in conducting any activities for your customers. 7. Bad leadership, Business head favourites gets promotion. Shoe polish culture, open blame games, people needs lots of follows for performing a single job. Slow supply chain response. 8. Very low incentives. And getting the same is dependent on various factors which are not related to revenue and unit sales. Even you do 100 percent number there are high chances you may not get your incentives as it all depends on other factors. 9. Pure pharmaceutical industry culture, being a medical devices and equipment company. 10. No promotions, high attrition rate and who so ever stay they become strong politicians.

    I worked at Baxter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can get a higher package as compared to other pharma companies.

    Cons

    Company management struggling to find an appropriate strategy to survive in India. The cash crunch is a major issue with the company due to which ample time will not be given to the sales team in the field to execute the plans. No connection between Senior management and field team . Hire and Fire theory is applied to the Field team. Useless HR. You will get Webex training for New Hire Salespeople ( First time I saw... in my career ). I have not seen any medical person in my tenure at Baxter to support Drs for their queries. Also, you get an additional job as a clerk. Spend at least 2 hours daily at Laptop in routine days and spend 4-6 hours during closing and meeting days. #does not recommend joining Baxter #Short term plan@Baxter # get a hike and leave ASAP within 6 months # Pathetic work & life balance

    Advice to Management

    Choose better Senior management. Imagine if BU head level person is leaving in a year Baxter, then signs are not really good to grow or even survive. Also, selection criterias are also questionable.
