I have learn many skills while bein here as leadership, how to take quick decisions and how to work with others. I have experience in the quality areas such as auditing and supplier management process. in the manufacturing areas I have been from an assembler to a manufacturing supervisor.
Competitive work environment requiring expediency, efficiency and initiative
Director, Quality (Current Employee) – Round Lake, IL – October 12, 2015
Wrestling with legacy infrastructure (like many companies), innovating new technologies and ways of serving the patient population. All products are genuine life saving or life saving drugs and devices. The level of expertise and experience is generally thin and narrow.
Quality Analyst I (Current Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – October 9, 2015
A typical day at work includes an 8 AM meeting to go over our metrics from the day before, any safety and GMP issues from the day before and any tasks that must be completed during the day. From there employees would work on any items that were received and needed to be inspected throughout the day. Coworkers were very outgoing and eager to help with any and all problems.
The work environment is extremely productive with a sort of push to make sure you finished all of your work on time and release material to manufacturing as needed.
Lean job staff, great people, struggling through larger company aquisition
Senior Quality Engineer (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – October 8, 2015
This site is going through the worst of their big company acquisition growing pains. The smaller company of Synovis was acquired by Baxter 3.5 years ago, and since Baxter itself has split into 2 separate companies. That has caused a lot of commotion the site is struggling to overcome. Management seems to be very reactionary instead of preventative, which is frustrating. The most rewarding part of my job is working with my colleagues whom I enjoy and interact with on a daily basis. The culture and work/life balance is very good and I have great personal relationships with everyone.
Flexible hours, intriguing products, great colleagues, good benefits package
Global Product Surveillance Quality Associate I (Current Employee) – Round Lake, IL – October 8, 2015
Take an assignment daily of complaints of Baxter products. Determine portability to the FDA and complete necessary tasks/investigation for closure of complaint. I loved working for this company but after its split into two companies, job security is now an issue.
Was a great company to work for
No more job security, overtime is no longer an option as resources are tight
Warehouse Operator I (Former Employee) – Guayama, PR – September 24, 2015
A very demanding and interesting job. In my time at baxter I have learned a lot and grow as a professional. My supervisor and my manager make me feel at home at all times. only 350 employees so basically, you get to know everybody. I do a lot of variety work, from inventory duties, material handling, receiving components to prepare and dispatch finished products to port. That's what I love about my job, the variety and challenging of it. All my co workers are nice and help me a lot.
Certifications and continued education
Only thing i can think of is distance from my family and home
Loved this job! Got such a good feeling from this job because I knew I was helping people; after all, I was shipping medical supplies. I hated losing this job (due to down-sizing). I always felt good going to work there!
Assembler (Current Employee) – irvine CA – September 14, 2015
When I/m working at Baxter, I've learned some new experiences in medical field. Although it doesn't have any relationship to my current major in school, I still want to learn something new to explore my skills. My co-workers are really friendly and helpful. I'm very enjoyable when I'm working over there.
