    I worked at Baxter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Above average pay for Quality Staff who work full-time. -Good overtime. -Great team in manufacturing, awesome to work with. They make the hours go by. -No racism. Diverse staff.

    Cons

    -Poor involvement of senior management. In some cases, will only respond when machine breaks down / start losing thousands of dollars. -Hopeless in terms of job security. There are too many casuals with some working as casuals for as long as 10 years only to find out someone else took your job for no reason. By casuals I mean full-time workers including weekends. -HR are 'selective'. Just because you worked for the company for 5 years will not guarantee you will the role you are after let alone switching shifts.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    lots of personal development, pay rate on the high side

    Cons

    Very silo'ed (manufacturing vs compounding), senior (compounding ) management girls club, very political and toxic if you are not part of this "exclusive club", very gender unbalanced, needs a better balance at senior management level. Senior Quality Management team are micro-managers and bullies- do not listen to learn....creating a toxic environment- finger pointing and shifting liability....gossiping amongst senior management team...very unprofessional...

    I worked at Baxter full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can get a higher package as compared to other pharma companies.

    Cons

    Company management struggling to find an appropriate strategy to survive in India. The cash crunch is a major issue with the company due to which ample time will not be given to the sales team in the field to execute the plans. No connection between Senior management and field team . Hire and Fire theory is applied to the Field team. Useless HR. You will get Webex training for New Hire Salespeople ( First time I saw in my career ). I have not seen any medical person in my tenure at Baxter to support Drs for their queries. Also, you get an additional job as a clerk. Spend at least 2 hours daily at Laptop in routine days and spend 4-6 hours during closing and meeting days. #does not recommend joining Baxter #Short term plan@Baxter # get a hike and leave ASAP within 6 months # Pathetic work & life balance

    I worked at Baxter full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 25 annual days, it's a good place to start if you just finish your degree.

    Cons

    It's very operational, data entry job. The managers are not qualified. The salary for pharmaceutical industry is very low. HR is not evolved, so it seems there is no rules there. Senior management don't get too much evolved with the teams.

    Pros

    Good salary, dedicated people, honorable work, great customers

    Current workforce too lean to properly achieve objectives, senior management does not respect work/life balance (expect managers to be available 24/7 at higher levels in the organization, mid-level will depend on individual hiring manager), high stress levels in organization
