    I have been working at Baxter as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits, charity of your choice they donate to, casual atmosphere. The campus here in RL are great and close to home.

    Cons

    Hard to get on FT as a contractor. Your foot is in the door, but they truly hire from within first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your contractors, and if respected and liked, find them a position within.

    I have been working at Baxter full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn the pharma industry. Wonderful training programs. Recognized for your quality work and efforts. Fabulous benefits. Culturally sound. Fellow team members share information and support the new hires.

    Cons

    Compensation is above average. Work/Life: It is not policy to close for a 'polar vortex' or snow days. Due to busy schedules/demands/deadlines, personal growth is on the agenda, however, sometimes not the priority. However, managers have open door policies and will re-visit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the process improvement initiatives, open door policy, answering the questions and reassuring the employees.

    Pros

    Great benefits, the thousand oaks facility is in a beautiful area. The majority of people are very polite and willing to help with whatever you need done.

    Cons

    Manufacturing gets paid less then everyone else. They push you to get trained very quickly which leads to poor training which leads to errors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay manufacturing more! They makeyour paychecks. Without them there is no product.
