    Good place to grow a career

    Operations Analyst (Current Employee) Round Lake, IL (US)

    ProsI believe Baxter has a way of finding the right spot for the talent. The pay + benefits are acceptable but I wouldn't call them extremely competitive.

    ConsDifficult to move vertically in some groups, reorganizing seems more common.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook to promote some of your young talent early in order to keep them dedicated to their roles.

    Great place to work

    Research Associate II (Current Employee) Round Lake, IL (US)

    ProsAwesome benefits plan, education reimbursement (100% pre-grad and 80% post-grad), ability to cross train in other departments, summer hours (work monday thru friday at nine hours a day, half day on friday)

    ConsExcellent talent base makes it difficult to aquire a promotion (most employees have a masters degree or greater). Can't complain

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore mentoring needed

    Good Pay, Excellent Benefits

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Milwaukee, WI (US)

    ProsI've worked in two different areas and both times I've been surounded by great people and have had my superiors eager to help me grow. The pay is good, but e benefits are great (although Obamacare has hurt them). I've been with the company for 9yrs so far and I'm not looking at leaving

    ConsStandard big corporate TPS reports garbage, but really not that big of a deal.
