An overall excellent experience
Quality Audit Technician (Former Employee), PRFebruary 10, 2015
Pros: plenty of support, fast-paced process, never a dull moment.
Cons: weekend shifts, slight lack of personnel.
A typical day on site consisted of performing audits across various areas of each of the five lines of production of medication delivery devices and packaging lines. This was my first experience with the process from start to finish of medication delivery. The learning experience was invaluable as it allowed me to see other aspects of the pharmaceutical industry and how manufacturing techniques differ from site to site and also how the process is indeed similar. Management was effective at coordinating the process and placing the employees exactly where they would be most effective, with the overriding concept being equal exposure to all aspects of the process. My co-workers were very helpful in showing me the ropes of this new process and the experience gained during my time here will help me face new and exciting opportunities. The most difficult part of the job was the schedule of production and handling non-conformance events as they would occur, but of course there was plenty of support to handle all the details when needed. The best part of this job was the dynamic nature of the manufacturing process and being on my feet most of the day. Auditing the process was extremely enjoyable and rewarding at the same time.

Chemist II (Current Employee), Round Lake, ILFebruary 9, 2015
Chemists who perform well are put on a path to grow up the corporate ladder. You work hard, for long hours. Most coworkers are very easy to get along with. Management staff can seem very selfish at times, but if your ideas are good they will help a little bit. Hardest part of the job is trying to make improvements while carrying a heavy work load.
If you hesitate a lot and are not confident, you will not enjoy your experience.

Contractor-Engineer
R and D Material Science Engineer (Current Employee), Round Lake, ILFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: helpful employees, relaxed environment
Cons: contractor company/pay
I am a contractor to Baxter Healthcare. The compensation gets one star because the contract company way low balled the job, even my boss and baxter employees were shocked at how low my salary was. Job Advancement would have been a breeze if my degree was in engineering. If you have a degree other than engineering you will not likely get a job. Work load is fair. Lots of helpful employees. Everyone makes you feel welcome. Love the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend working here, but if you are contractor do your research.

Truck Driver (Current Employee), Mountain Home, ARJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: pay, benefits, co-workers
Cons: hours
Baxter Healthcare is a great place to work. The benefits are awesome along with the people you work with. It is difficult to work an off shift job though when you have a family at home and are working on your education also. I get paid exceptionally well and really enjoy my work, but I would trade it to be able to work a 1st shift job and be home with my family every night.
