I worked out on Whiddy Island for over a year while the SPM Pipeline was being built. This was being built after the explosion on Whiddy Island. It was enjoyable, we learned fire fighting, how to sail. I took minutes of meetings when the directors of Ascon, Whiddy Oil and Ove Arups had their weekly meetings. I took deliveries that were sent to the Island, collected post from the post office in Bantry. Arranged lunches, travel for the directors and organized on and off site meetings.

Exciting, fast paced place to work. Wouldn't recommend as a long-term place to work, slow level of progression for staff member. Perfect for an internship.

Project Engineer (Current Employee) - Cork
Good place to start your career as their 70-20-10 learning policy will improve your engineering skills through the development of projects (70%), by explanations of colleagues (20%) and by direct training (10%). Usually the working hours are from 9.00 am to 5.30 pm but depending on the deadlines, unpaid overtime may be necessary. I would underline the respect among all colleagues, regardless of the management level. Comparing to competitors salaries in general are too low, and twice a year paid profit share won´t compensate that.
Pros
Low salary. Money spent in Adds, Community Engagement and Charities.
Cons
Profit share and Social Committee events.
