Low wages, bad training, depressing atmosphere
Senior PCT - Advanced (Former Employee), Elkhart, INFebruary 12, 2014
Pros: benefits are good and the stock is doing well
Cons: don't expect to be appreciated or rewarded. do expect to be criticized
Training program needs improvement. Trainers lord their status over new hires and refuse to give out information unless the new person grovels. If you complain, the managers will say that it's your fault for not showing enough initiative. Training supervisors get paid a lot of money to do nothing at all.

Managers are ineffective and highly critical. – more... Very little appreciation is given, even to top performing workers. This is a culture of negativity and punishment.

Low morale is a constant problem.

Some BioLifes will make you take your lunch within an hour of punching in and will not give you even a 5 min bathroom break for the rest of the day. If you complain, you could be fired. – less

Handler (Current Employee), Marion, NCFebruary 3, 2014
Pros: benefits, employment advancement, good money
Cons: worked 6 days a week every week. mandatory overtime
It was a challengeing fast pace work place but was a overall fun place to work. My co workers and I become great friends and tend to even meet up outside of the work area. We would challenge each other to who could fill the most bags by the end of the night. I got a job award and was awarded a handler job which left me to run the line on most nights. – more... It had its ups and downs but overall great job! – less

Production oriented company
Filling Operator (Current Employee), Marion, NCJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: paid vacations and holidays
Cons: working 6 days and short breaks
When I first started at Baxter it was VERY overwhelming. Going into a high production yielding company can be that way however. the trainers and supervision do give you the time you need to catch up to speed and learn your job very well before they leave you to it by yourself.

Productive days. Always embarking on new technology and process enhancements.
Quality Associate II - Supervisor (Current Employee), Cleveland, MSJanuary 13, 2014
A typical day at work is based on communicating with direct reports on daily activities, attending meetings for process improvements and project implementation, and working against timelines to ensure target goals are met effectively. We are also a very 6S focused company that strives to constantly elimnate waste and improve our processes.

The hardest – more... part of the job is the amount of multitaksing that is required. We have numerous projects so number one always changes.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling of accomplishment for the projects implemented and the successes from them. – less

Plenty of Opportunities for personal development, but resistance from management
Engineer I (Current Employee), Cleveland, MSJanuary 10, 2014
Pros: typical benefits, lots of development opportunities, good work life
Cons: lack of managment support, lots of employee turnover
Baxter Corporate talks about how employees are allowed to own their development. When I've tried to talk with my manager about opportunities I think can help me develop into the engineer I want to be, they get shot down without any attempt at a counter proposal to help me get to the same point. I enjoy the people I work with and the see a lot of manufacturing – more... processes I can learn through work experiences, but there are more things I want to do to improve them that those opportunites are not supported. Being only exposed to one plant within Baxter may not reflect the managment style of Baxter as a whole. – less
