Lots of unhappy people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Deerfield, IL (US)

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

ProsIt 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.

ConsManagement 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 Senior ManagementIt is important that one is able to trust management and that employees are able to trust each other.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The work/life balance tips the scales to work.

Quality Manager (Current Employee)
Independence, MO (US)

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


Pros: Large company that allows/encourages movement. Opportunity for travel (if you desire). Cons: Managers will tell you that family is important, but that's never the case. I was told that should the FDA show up for an… Advice to Senior Management: Support your top performers. Support their families. Stop… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
