      Great work life balance. Willing to help employees grow and be better - they tailor your work around what you want your development to be like. Very inclusive. Great company for women to grow in.

      Undervalued customer service employees

      Pros

      good healthcare coverage and I liked my peers

      Cons

      Low pay, customer service employees are hounded to push out calls nonstop making for a poor work/life balance, with no incentive whatsoever to do better, but if you don't do an insane number of calls you will have a low score and reprimanded. Little guidance for growth, very strict and just poor management overall. Felt like a number not a human being. Management doesn't care about the quality of care you deliver to the patients-- they care about the statistics of the phone call. So if you are on one call for a long period of time because you have to go above and beyond to help a patient, it actually works against your overall score. If you are even one minute late you are docked way too much. mandatory overtime for months at a time with no hopes for it ending.

      Engineering Review

      May 3, 2021 - Senior Mechanical Engineer in Round Lake, IL

      Pros

      Healthcare benefits Skills training available if budget allows for it

      Cons

      You will quickly learn the core business is not engineering. The products/plants are not standardized. I have been at Baxter for 5 years and every year we get a new CVP that changes the "plan" of engineering. I would not recommend working here for engineering. Unless you go through the TDP program you will not be promoted. Honestly, no matter how hard you work the bonus/raise will be the same or lower each year. You will only grow bitter and frustrated.
