I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good money, lots of overtime and also lots of overtime incentives, extra money on top of your base pay and overtime to work more overtime. Customer service pays $40k per year, base pay.

Cons

Lots of mandatory overtime, no room for growth in certain depts. Lots of favoritism. Not very flexible, for work life balance. Take it or leave it approach in Customer service dept.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop the micromanagement.

    Overall, it's a great company to work for. Although it is a massive company.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits including educational assistance. Good core values. The company recently acquired Baxa which was a great company too. Hopefully it will be a good thing in the long run. Both companies were known for quality products, and the integration should bring an even higher quality of customer service.

    Cons

    It is a big corporation. It's easy to get lost in it and sometimes difficult to get things done. Being in a regulated industry also doesn't help with the red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solve problems with critical thinking, not by ignoring them or throwing money at them. Try not to let the word "corporate" define your culture.

  2.  

    Great company culture. Really embraces anyone's ideas for improvement. Asks front line employees for feedback often.

    I have been working at Baxter

    Pros

    Great culture, a lot of mobility within the company

    Cons

    Decent salaries and benefits, but other companies do pay more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the salaries across the board to compete with other major players in the industry. The competitor's salaries are beginning to become a temptation in this market.
