Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) –  Dublin13 January 2017
Don't know where to start! Training is so slow, not allocated time to be trained, I asked for time and they were "always too busy". Management is terrible. There is no communication between management and production staff. Salary is terrible. Trying to get time off is impossible as there is a restriction on 1/3 of the year now including Christmas and from may until September your only allowed take block weeks off not individual days. Lates are horrible you never actually get out at half 7 because something always delays us. Overtime is compulsory which is ridiculous! 6 hours overtime to be completed when your supposed to be on the early shift.
Pros
Free tea/coffee, people in production are great fun
Cons
Salary is terrible, overtime is compulsory, management

Baxter was a fun hardworking environment
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Castlebar, MO17 March 2015
Position held was Team Leader.Involved a lot of quality assurance and GMP. Tracking systems were in place throughout each procedure and reports and sign off's were regularly necessary.
Co workers showed great discipline, worked hard and were very helpful.Hardest part of the job would of been when the machines would temporarily breakdown and we would have to wait on after a 12 hour shift and finish the batches.
Most enjoyable part of the day was when batches ran smooth and everyone was motivated and in good working form.
Pros
weekdays were free, food was subsidised, discounts on activities in the town.
Cons
weekends were long with the two 12 hour shifts, 2 days of in the year

at the time there was no job sharing or part time work to suit different needs.
