Safe and stable environment, low standards of excellence makes it easy to achieve

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Overall good place to work, you're given a lot autonomy to run your own department. However, next step career wise is slow. Long term employees ahead of your,20 plus years on tenure before moving up a level of management.

Pros

Good operators, lots of autonomy

Cons

Bit of a boys club, too many people who have never worked elsewhere

High demand but well paid

Well paid but definitely not the job for everyone. The job will be high demand on mental and physical strength. However, it is well rewarded and just above the market wage .

Thanks so much for the review, we are not sure what team you worked for but appreciate you championing our compensation and benefits. Thanks again for the feedback, #ThisIsWhere we appreciate it and wish you all the best for the future.

Lack of communication, staff and micromanagement

Working at Baxter is brilliant when they have adequate staffing levels… however in the Perth site that was not the case. Over worked, stressed employees and doing overtime daily, hours of overtime, was expected, not asked. A text every morning asking you to come in an hour and a half early, DAILY. You have to give a reason why you CANT do daily over time. Severe lack of appreciation for the “little guys”. $250 million WA tender, yet no bonuses… says a lot about priorities. Management are either too hands off, or too demanding. High staff turnover means nobody is actually trained to assist. Absolute nightmare.

Pros

Decent pay (no hazard pay), lovely people (you trauma bond)

Cons

Long hours, lack of staff, high stress and extreme physical and mental demand on staff

Generally good team on the floor, management could improve in lots of aspects.

Experienced casual workers are overlooked and new ones with no experience are preferred. Too much self-interest and politics. Production team members generally used to be good to work with. Management often asks to work extensive hours, poor work life balance.

Pros

Reasonable pay, relatively secure work

Cons

Disrespect and lack of appreciation of efforts for casuals, no opportunity to become permanent, too much politics.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and mention compensation benefits. Sorry to hear that this was your experience. This is not in keeping with the values we support or our expectations for our employee experience. We appreciate you highlighting this and will convey this back. Thank you for your feedback.

Work your butt off, and earn minimum wage

Loved team mates, enjoyed the work, didn't enjoy feeling completely unappreciated and consistently given more and more work and responsibilities with no renumeration.

Pros

Good team culture

Cons

No HR, low pay

Pharmacy Management

i ( compounding assistant) experienced a very poor management in pharmacy. Need experienced manager and Team leaders. Wasting of money by recruiting so many people and not maintaining with ground staff. No equal work hours for people because of Nationality discrimination.

Productive and fun workplace with a great canteen and a separate cafe

A typical day at work involves alot of things happening. Firstly, you enter through the canteen to put your food there as you cannot have any food at all in the manufacturing area. Secondly, you would go to your locker to get your uniform and change to be able to enter the sterile rooms that you work in. Most people are friendly there and will say hello as you pass in the corridors, even the managers. There is a diverse culture of people that work at Baxter Healthcare which makes it interesting. Sometimes the shifts can be extended and some days you really don't feel up to it, but you do push your way through it and get there in the end. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great friends that you made and they turned out to be fantastic work colleagues as well.

Pros

Free BBQ lunches

Cons

Long hours

Slow career growth

Slow career growth. More on physical work. Repetitive work but good co- workers. If you are a degree holder, it is not recognise as they treat everyone the in same level.

Fast-paced, must be able to meet numbers, quick-thinking and repetitive. Always looking to expand, hands on work, attention to detail, and responsibility.

Productive workplace

An amazing workplace with a great atmosphere. Great work/life balance and plenty of opportunities for future development within the company. Easy to pick up if new to the industry.

Good work culture

By far the best aspect of this company was the attention to training staff. Day to day work was varied. Some days good and some days stressful. Overtime was often required and encouraged but not demanded and paid well. Hardest part of job for me was back and shoulder pain after working in clean room cabinets.

Lacks vision and rigour in management

A role here is very different depending on where you are on campus (Commercial, Finance, Supply Chain, Reg Affairs, Manufacturing, Quality, Compounding). Desire to change and improve is there, but not acted on cohesively. Feels like everyone wants someone else to do the heavy lifting and then point out when they fail. If you have the right manager then the satisfaction of working for a company doing something so impactful is really excellent.

Poor management, workers are frowned upon for trying to be efficient

Don’t work here. Poor toxic culture endorsed by inexperienced out of touch managers and team leaders . If you’re lazy and want to just get a pay check you will be happy in this toxic environment.

Poor work culture

I was excited to work for a global health organization until I commenced working at Baxter. My manager treated me poorly and unequal to my peers. There’s no trust in management. It was a really bad experience and one that I regret leaving a permanent job of 15+ years.

Overall, Okay

I believe overall Baxter provides a good work environment that endeavours strong OHS requirements. The work environment was always clean and the practices preformed were always in line with what was required.

Productive and rewarding workplace

was part of the customer support homecare team responsible for contacting & supplying 280 - 300 allocated home patients on home nutrition & renal dialysis. Also taking incoming calls from the home patients and hospitals to process orders and follow up general enquiries. Learnt many new skills that were also required as part of the role eg processing of credits, transfers of debts, setting up patient files and learning to understand and the needs and requirements of the patients based on their medical requirements. Worked under a great Manager & team leader who were always supportive of the team when ever needed. Work place culture was of a good standard where everyone worked together as a team. Hardest part of the job was the long hours that had to be put in days due to increasing work loads. Most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction for helping people to make sure they received their monthly requirements for a better quality of life

Pros

opportunities to do volunteer work, internal cafe & bistro, gym facility, well set out office and meeting room facilities

Cons

long hours
