    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay is good, health insurance is ok.

    Cons

    Continuous, never ending reorganisation. Managers prone to cutting employee benefits year after year while demanding more work in return. Overtime will not be paid even though employees cannot refuse OT. Ongoing customer complaints. Employees wellbeing seems to be of no importance at all. Human resources uneffective and seem to work solely for management instead of employees. Baxter has a reputation of firing employees over 50 years old or returning to work after giving birth. The best place to work awards are far from reality.

    Current Employee - Supply Chain Planner

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Back when I worked at Baxter, I kept hearing from other colleagues who had kept in touch with their former colleagues, that companies liked hiring people from Baxter because they were very well trained. I can attest to this - it's like being baptized in fire, and yes, that's a good thing. It trains you to be really good on the foundational level, which means you develop a good set of habits to fall back on at any job.

    Cons

    At the same time, being baptized by fire/learning at the foundational level means the systems aren't at the level you would want to be at. There is significant investment needed to bring the systems up to par.
