I worked as a filling operator and then became a qualified trainer. I absolutely loved the job and the benefits that came along with it, but my body and mental health could no longer handle working 6 days a week on third shift for 6+ months. If I'm allowed the opportunity to return to Baxter, I would wish for a position that isn't on 6-7 days/week.
Senior Graphic Designer at Accenture (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 21, 2017
I was not a direct employee for Baxter. Please refer to my work at Accenture and Quicksilver Associates. As a senior graphic designer at Accenture, I worked in the Marketing Resources area. I helped design RFPs and PowerPoint presentations for them. Later, I became a lead print designer.
Competitive and Fast paced with a complex social hierarchy.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Marion, NC – December 19, 2017
I personally didn't enjoy my time there. Lots of groups based mostly in people that lived in the same county as the factory. I lived a hour away so I had leave home at least one and half hours before work. Took 15 minutes to get all the sanitary gear on.
Baxter Health Care Corp (Former Employee) – Municipio de Jayuya, PR – December 19, 2017
It was a job for hospitals which had to be impeccable, from your person to the product you had in your hands. We had uniform, there was a protocol to enter the work area and for said work. Everything had its time, organization and schedule.
Burst Testing Technician (Former Employee) – Round Lake, IL – December 18, 2017
I worked at Baxter for a short-term temporary assignment. I was overqualified for the position and they ended up using me for custodial duties a lot. That was definitely not what I signed up for. The recruiter who placed me at this assignment assured me that if I worked this low-paying, short term assignment that I would have a good chance of landing a better, permanent position with the company. That never happened.
Production Technician II (Former Employee) – Cleveland, Mississippi – December 13, 2017
Once you settle into your position and get done with training your pretty much on your own with momentary visitations from a supervisor. Even though it was a manufacturing facility the people there were like family and treated you as family.
Laboratory Analyst (Former Employee) – North Singapore – December 10, 2017
Equal opportunity to all employees. Encourages everyone to provide regular feedback from all departments. Ensures that all employees are well-informed and updated about company policies and regulations
Work that saves and sustains lives, but high stress and high expectations
Operational Excellence Manager (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – November 30, 2017
Large company where communication can be very difficult across facilities. Many goals and expectations were determined from higher levels who were not aware of the activities at the local level. Compensation and benefits were good however.
Material Supply Handler / Production Associate (Former Employee) – Round Lake, IL – November 30, 2017
Management lacked interpersonal communicating skills. Cut corners often and did not show appreciation to the employees. Advancement wasn't based on experience or knowledge but solely on whether management liked you.
Territory Business Manager Columbus (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – November 29, 2017
Baxter was a great opportunity to learn and achieve very satisfying career goals. The management was the best I had experienced in the industry. The compensation package and expectation for employees was second to none. It was a shame they dissolved the anesthesia division.
