Operations Coordinator/Customer Care Rep (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – March 4, 2014
Pros: team environment
Cons: only contract work
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.
Cons: going through massive cost cutting, not adding head count but cutting head count instead!
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 – more... 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! – less
Nurse Network Educator (Former Employee), Based out of Mississauga Ontario – May 14, 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. – more... Worst decision of my life to take a position with them – less

Good entry level job, poor upward development. Tedious and heavy workload.
Global Field Surveillance Quality Associate (Former Employee), Round Lake, IL – October 21, 2014
This is a good first job to accept directly out of school, but it is a stepping stone position and has very poor retention due to the monotonous nature of the work. Baxter uses the promise of upward development to lure people into this position, but there is very little opportunity to move on from this career within the company. It is a very good start – more... for someone interested in a future in quality, but a trap for those interested in design. – less
Patient Services Co-Ordinator (Current Employee), Stockport, ENG – October 11, 2014
Pros: lovely people
Cons: a horrible journey to work
A very busy office where the phone rings constantly. I have learned to be calm in stressful situations and prioritise my work. The management are lovely and always prepared to listen to you. My workmates are great and have become good friends. The hardest part of the job is answering the phone all day whilst still completing your daily tasks. The most – more... enjoyable part of the job is when a patient thanks you for making a difference to them. – less

My co-workers are all dedicated and proficient with their job. They take their career seriously and operate with knowledge, professionalism and heart. This also applies to the management team as they hear out their direct reports and support the need of the workers in order to make their jobs efficient, safe and valuable to the organization.
