I worked in the EMEA centre in Cherrywood, Dublin and found the staff and management very helpful during my stay with them. Going live on the systems was frustratingly slow but when I got there I realised just how challenging their work is. The EMEA sits in the centre managing relationships. Its a busy target driven environment with conference calls and investigative / reconciliation work to the fore. Its multinational staff gelled well together. Nice experience but just wasn't for me.
Pros
Free lunch occasionally and table tennis in canteen.
Cons
Long hours when required on crunch days. You work Irish bank holidays.

It's a very hostile enviornment in Abbott Clonmel. It seems to be driven by bosses on big bonuses who seem to think that the end justifies the means. In a way, it does, they get their pay off's. High turn over of staff and those who stay are pitiful locals who cant move. My advice, go to Lidl. Needs a union badly.
Pros
Doesnt have a union
Cons
Badly needs a union

Abbott Nutrition is a fantastic place to develop skills and gain vital experience in the nutrition industry. there is often a relaxed atmosphere on site and there is usually good opportunities for collaboration with colleagues.

Diagnostics, nutrition & diabetes care are totally different It is all about tight budgets & savings in some plants. Management have no experience in areas managing, young low paid well educated employees will progress if they agree with & get on with management, but won't succeed if they speak out for what is best for the company
Pros
Good canteen
Cons

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.

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

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.

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.
