Analytics (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – November 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.
Good pay. Comparable benefits to other healthcare companies.
Job security. Medical device business is not growing. Profit is slim.

Operations Coordinator/Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – March 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.
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!
free coffee, work life balance (so far)
going through massive cost cutting, not adding head count but cutting head count instead!
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. Worst decision of my life to take a position with them

I completed a registration and reservation for the Director of the Pharmacovigilance who attended a Seminar Downtown Toronto with Hotel accommodation.
I received acknowledgement for the job and though it was a six month's contract - I enjoyed working with the staff and the Directors as well
Préposée à l'assemblage (Former Employee) – Sherbrooke, Québec – October 31, 2012
J'ai été à l'emploi de la Corporation Baxter pendant 28 ans. L'usine a fermé ses portes en décembre 2011, c'est la seule raison pourquoi je n'y travaille plus.... J'adorais mon travail qui était de fabriquer des tubulures intraveineuses pour les hôpitaux. Je trouvais mon travail valorisant puisqu'il consistait à fabriquer des produits pour aider les gens. J'aimais le travail répétitif et le fait de travailler autant en groupe qu'individuellement.
