Enjoyable place to work with good people.
Everyone was treated the equally.
I would defiantly work there again if the chance ever arose.
I have made life long friends from my time at Abbott Vascular Clonmel.
No information related to the role available as protocol
No team work culture
You must be related to insider to get a job especially village site ie. Longford
No direct contract .
Keep working on Agency contracts until new replace then leave.
Very ignorant team lead, managers line
No proper scientific manifestation
Good stepping stone for other better paid medical device/pharma factories elsewhere.Be prepared to work hard from the moment you clock in, very fast paced environment with high and sometimes unrealistic targets. Some great people working there and some great opportunities to work up the ladder if you do put the head down and work hard.
Nice place to work. Good team members and management.
My routine work includes testing of reagents, sample preparations, executions, method validation, EDMS (Electronic Data Management System) data analysis, troubleshooting with testing protocol, preparing protocols, testing verification, documentation according to regulatory guidelines, maintaining GMP and GLP standard, 6S and stock inventory maintenance
Abbott Clonmel- Very stressful and difficult place to work. I worked here for several years and only that it was on my front door I'd have moved within a week. Very pushy management, negativity and arrogance are rife and widely accepted as normal. I'd even say that bullying does not go unchecked and HR are nowhere to be seen.
I will never work for Abbott or their like again
I was employed on a temporary contract, as an admin assistant with accounts payable. My duties included, printing off the emailed invoices, statements, dunning notes, purchase orders, goods received forms and shipping / courier / delivery documents for all purchases in all plants.
Sorting the documents into packages, firstly into the right plant sections, secondly into the right order (usually starting by the purchase order number followed by the invoice number then the dunning note and ending with the goods received docket.)
Finally delivery of the correct and complete package to the assigned person for payment.
Occasionally I would have to contact the suppliers requesting corrections to invoices ie: credit notes for VAT exempt or sometimes where the wrong purchase order numbers was quoted.
Quite often I would have to scan filed documents back to the plant / ware house, for various queries or audits.
Last but by no means least, the perfect filing of all documents, which was a huge task as the paper trail was enormous.
I really appriecate having had the experience in working in the corporate sector. Although being the last post of denfence I did at times feel slightly stressed. and over whelmed. A handbook on my main duties, would have been a huge benefit as I felt my supervisor didn't communicate very well due mainly to time constraints
Company is good but Longford is a small and quiet town. There's all you need but not enough social life for younsters in Longford. Salary in Abbott is okay not great starting is 28-30000. Will increase to 33-35 in 2 yrs
Was a safe job....production line based .. 2 shifts changed by a week... Was not easy to adjust for a weekly changing lifestyle.... But could live with it... Good money, fun team.... It was a good job...very strict on rules and regulations...but it is important in a pharma company....
Diagnostics Assistant (Former Employee) - Longford - 15 September 2019
Worked here for 10+ years was brilliant at the start.Due to a great team & manager. Everything changed in the past few years.Toxic Environment don’t let the nice building fool you in late they have hired the most horrible head strong people..everyday there and was someone upset.
Great sports & social club, Great family day provided, most of the manufacturing staff were very friendly
No flexible hours for manufacturin, No Christmas bonus, Management have favourites & these people excel.
i was om the evening shift of 4-12. i learned how to work as part of a production lines producing around 12000 cans per shift. i never had any problems working there it was a very friendly environment. I never found any tasks too difficult. High standards of quality had to be maintained as we were working with baby formula.
Horrible work environment. Operators basic fortnightly €920 with shift rate . Bullying culture within management high turnover of staff . Massive amount of eastern Europeans who freely speak amongst themselves with no repercussions from management which causes friction. Overtime is constantly being run on Saturdays chance to earn extra money if needed. Long nights 4.20 to 1 am which is every second week . Monotonous work little station rotation. Toothless hr team they will not help staff with any bullying complaints against upper management and supervisors. A very nasty hostile environment is to be expected if u choose abbott clonmel . Also general morale is atrocious worst ive ever witnessed.extremely strict rules on holiday time . Expect not to receive a lot of time that u asked for
Like any job it is what you make it. If you want the opportunity to progress in your career it is there for you. Great training and development opportunities. Opportunity for your realistic ideas and process improvements to be tried. Yes there will be long hours at times but that is expected with the job. Great senior management team who want your input and want you to succeed. The only reason I gave four stars for management is that some junior managers may not be the best fit for the jobs they are in and that is down to their own character rather than lack of training or support from senior management. Good team communication and great culture. Great support services on site in terms of HR, training manager and facilities manager. Nice location and great canteen services.
OK place to work apart from management , there a class apart , especially HR manager , pay is not great ,office staff think they are a different grade its nice to say hello Or thank you if someone holds the door opened
Abbott have been instrumental in the development of a young person searching for industrial experience. The experience gathered from the company will stand to any individual moving on in their future careers.
