Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ONAugust 3, 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.

Sales Operations Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONJuly 15, 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, ONNovember 24, 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.

Operations Coordinator/Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ONMarch 4, 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

Company cutting costs aggressively! Hiring more contractors!
Finance & Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  MississaugaFebruary 17, 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 OntarioMay 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. Worst decision of my life to take a position with them

I enjoyed working with the Pharmacovigilance team. I had to send faxes on a daily basis to the Ministry of Health. I enjoyed working with the Director for RAPV and her team. I prepared Agendas and presentations as per her request.
