Worst place I have ever worked!
Sample Processing Technician (Former Employee), Lima OHAugust 25, 2014
Pros: non
Cons: everything, pay, hours, management
Work 10+ hr/ days on Mondays and Saturdays (no overtime pay), lucky to get 40/hrs a week. May as well work in a factory it is so hot in the facility with scrubs, lab coat, and constantly running around. Management is awful, they dont care about anything other than stats, they all sit in the office while the center is so busy . You have to be friends – more... with management to get a promotion, and those who do get them typically do not deserve them, or just are not qualified for them. Pay is not worth the hard work you will put into the place. Do not expect to be able to have a normal life, family and friends time is not allowed here. You work 2 morning shifts, and 3 night shifts. Overall, do not work here! – less

Their management definitely could use some educating on how to treat the employees. Very demeaning and also does not train employees on the job. Nothing positive to say.

Ita an employee friendly company.
Key Account Manager (Current Employee), Kochi, KLAugust 9, 2014
Baxter is one of the best company I have ever worked in. My job is to meet the nephrologists and promote the PD therapy. It is a very good concept as here we are competing with hemodailysis, as the management of the hospital is against PD therapy. So we have to convince the dr in getting patients for therapy. Our management is very supportive always – more... engages the key customers in various academic and scientific forums. My coworkers include clinical coordinators who will visit the patients and give them thetraining on how to do dialysis at home. They train them and also give monthly visits and give the follow-up feedback to drs along with sales team.
The hardest part of the job is the stocks issues. Once in a while we have to face it when patients call us for getting the stocks and we need to manage it through the other patients. The most enjoyable part is to see the patient and their family being happy after starting the therapy as they dont need to go to hospital for dialysis and can do it fro their homes. – less

Misleading, dishonest leadership, degrading environment
Senior Plasma Center Technician (Former Employee), Harrisonburg, VAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: benefits, interaction with the donors, and the aspect of helping those in need.
Cons: poor management and supervision, short breaks, toxic (mental and emotional abusive) environment, no accountability for poor behaviors of those in leadership positions.
I loved my job and thought it was important for those in need. I worked there almost 7 years. I am not a disgruntled employee. In fact I was more disgruntled while I worked there. The management there is poor. When the new manager took over, we got an award for lowest company turnover. With in the last 8 months, 17 people have left. The supervisors – more... belittle people in front of other employees and worse yet, in front of donors. When they are approached about their behavior, nothing is done. They have not done anything wrong and it is all your fault. They talk and gossip about the employees which creates a hostile and biased environment. Recently they have hired young, attractive girls into positions, and have made comments about the older (age wise, not employment length) workers there. The manager sits in his office and does not address issues and lets his supervisors run the business, and they often times do not realize they are doing things that are unethical and could be considered discriminatory. If you speak up for yourself, you are negative and non-compliant.There is little to no positive recognition of what you do. If they actually do thank you today, you will be wrong tomorrow. When a supervisor can raise her voice at an employee and tell them to shut up in front of other employees and donors, yet there is nothing done, there is a problem. It has been vocalized that this is a good job to have if you don't have kids. This is the environment at the Harrisonburg Virginia Biolife. – less

Very Disappointing! Misleading job schedule. Team leaders are arrogant and act like they are so much better than everyone else.
Plasma Center Technician (Former Employee), Stevens Point, WIJune 25, 2014
Pros: pay was ok, some employees were nice.
Cons: breaks when they dictate, floor supervisors are on a power trip, no days off during the week even if you work part-time, donors treated like cattle, hot working conditions, no consistent work schedule to follow.
I was told I was hired for part-time work however when I started working I was informed I would not be given any days off unless I used PTO. So basically they own you! You are scheduled everyday for some hours and usually all the undesired closing hours so you will be working 12-8 or later some nights.
Most people are not happy that work here, they – more... act like it in front of Management however when Management isn't around they talk about how much they hate and can't wait to leave.

You may be scheduled until close which is 8 or later by the time you get ALLOWED to leave after all of your tasks are complete then the next day you need to be back there at 5:45 am.

I have many years of work experience and many different roles and jobs. This by far was the worst, I felt like donors are just a number and I worked in a prison. – less

Intense and challenging workplace but with moderate reward
LA Manufac. Development Program Process Engineer (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 24, 2014
Pros: great employees, constant challenges
Cons: stressful workplace, low compensation/rewards
Baxter is a great place to work if you want to push yourself. Although the job description may start off standard, you can continually add different assignments and responsibilities that can flesh out your knowledge and on-hand experience as soon as you can.

The drawback mostly includes compensation and headcount. Although you can push yourself to – more... round out your career here at Baxter, there may not necessarily be a position that'll fit your new skills and knowledge. Therefore, it could take years before an appropriate position can open up. Along the way, the raises and bonuses are minimal, especially for first line supervisors and below. – less
