The work isn't difficult but can be repetitive. The culture could be improved. Management very much output focused. The salary is pretty good. Good prospects for advancement.

Former operator
Technician (Former Employee) –  Clonmel, County Tipperary18 February 2019
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
Pros
Decent money . Overtime annual bonus .
Cons
Management . 20 days holidays.

Great place place to work
Senior accountant (Former Employee) –  Dublim11 January 2019
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.
Pros
Development opportunities, progression, training

QA/Validation Specialist (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Longford11 June 2018
A typical day at work began between 8am and 10am (flexi-time). Coffee and water were available to drink as required. There is a subsidised canteen. I enhanced my knowledge in ISO13485, Validation and QA. Management treated me as a person. Excellent work culture. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving. I liked working for Abbott due to it's openness and good work / life balance. If any difficulties arose there was always someone there to help.
Pros
Subsidised Canteen
Cons
None

Colleague Interaction
General Assembler (Current Employee) –  Clonmel, County Tipperary1 March 2018
Abbott Vascular is one of the best by far when it comes to colleague interaction. The job can contain a lot of learning and everybody is always helpful when you are in need of information. Abbott drive a strict and robust work place which entails you to be efficient, determined and ambitious. With the help of my colleagues, we have successfully overcome production obstacles on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I've built up excellent interpersonal skills because of communicating with support staff, supervisors and managers.You aspect you may find difficult is that you may have to move station at any moment which can make it difficult to your routine but knowing it is the best decision for the whole line makes it worth while.
Pros
Healthcare provided, Shift work
Cons
Lack of quality
