Sales Operations Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON15 July 2016
There seems to be cost cutting here with the new CEO and recent sale of Baxalta. That being said, the ones who are employed seem very comfortable in their jobs, as the Canadian division seems to do well

Recent restructuring. No job security.
Analytics (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON24 November 2015
Recent restructuring occurred in the fall of 2015 with almost 10% reduction in headcount. No job security. Low morale. The company has lost/spin off its hemo business. What's left with Baxter now is not as quite profitable as the hemo business. Therefore, future profit is cloudy and fierce competition from the medical device industry as a whole.
Pros
Good pay. Comparable benefits to other healthcare companies.
Cons
Job security. Medical device business is not growing. Profit is slim.

A fast paced environment but fun place to work and learn.
Accounts Payable Administrator (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, Ont21 October 2013
A wonderful place to work where every body is so warm, friendly and helping. When a new member is on board, every body ensures the new member is comfortable and becomes part of the working group in very short time. The management is flexible and encourages innovation and open to the new ideas and smarter way of doing things.
Co-workers are great and every body follows the company values and vision.
The company had good benfits and perks and fun activites are arranged number of times through out the year.
The company has a very fast paced environment therefore one has to be very focsued on meeting deadlines and other challenges.
Personally I have learned a lot and has made lot of friends and build relationships with my customers.
I have trully enjoyed working with the company and will always wish them the best.
Pros
Good Benefits, Company shares and free lunches
Cons
Long hours and work life balance

Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON3 August 2016
A typical day at work is a juggling act, making sure you are keeping up with all needs as well as serving current pt's. The hardest part is losing a pt you have maintained a relationship with. The most enjoyable is helping ppl live.

Company cutting costs aggressively! Hiring more contractors!
Finance & Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Mississauga17 February 2014
Don't come here on a contract. The change of getting permanent is very slim/small. The Canadian office in Mississauga is aggressively cutting costs extensively and hiring more contractors to save on costs/head count. People are being let go from management to analyst level especially in Finance. Many jobs are being outsourced to Costa Rica. Only join the company if you are offered a permanent job upfront. The next few years, the company will go through tough times with more massive cost cutting. If you have a choice to work at a more stable company, go for it. Don't come here unless this is your best option....Company is going through massive cost cutting, not adding head count but cutting head count instead!
Pros
free coffee, work life balance (so far)
Cons
going through massive cost cutting, not adding head count but cutting head count instead!

Not a great company to work for
Nurse Network Educator (Former Employee) –  Based out of Mississauga Ontario14 May 2013
This is not a company that values creativity or dedication to quality of employees. Extensive travel is required and takes you away from having a life outside of work. Their expectation is that employees are robots rather than having expertise and adjusting instruction based on learner needs. There is also no job security as they are contract based. Worst decision of my life to take a position with them

Excellent Company
Operations Coordinator/Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON4 March 2014
There was never a dull moment here. My co-workers were amazing to work with, if you needed anything you just had to ask. Team Work and also the ability to work independently was an extremely important roll.

Baxter is a fast paced environment and you are always on your toes. The management team was always there to help in any way possible.
Pros
Team environment
Cons
only contract work

A very professional workplace
CNC machinist intern (Current Employee) –  Alliston, ON9 December 2014
A typical day at work would include making the the CNC program using the Delcam software. Then setting up the machine and the work piece and make the parts according to requirement. I have learnt a lot of things like how to make the best program which saves time as well as gives the best possible finish to the part, using various precision instruments, understanding complicated drawings and the types of materials and feeds and speeds suitable for them. My co-workers treated me very well and helped me to adapt the new environment. There was a great professionalism at the workplace which would make you love your work.
