Intercompany Analyst (Current Employee) –  Irlanda3 February 2019
Sto facendo un'esperienza che mai avrei sognato di fare nella mia vita.

Mi sento valorizzata e coinvolta in progetti importanti.

Lavoro in un team internazionale con persone provenienti da tutto il mondo.

Il processo di fine mese è la parte più dura del mese lavorativo, dove si lavora con molto stress dovuto alle chiusure dei bilanci e alle deadlines assegnate.

Bad outdated management on every level
Accounts Payable Assistant (Former Employee) –  County Dublin4 October 2018
Worked here for 6 years in accounts, Blackrock, Dublin. A toxic, confusing and outdated old school approach to constantly instil fear & lack of confidence into employees. Make employees feel like children to surpress ambition.

Pay is terrible. Management is laughable with complete lack of qualifications/ people skills and all promote each other/ outside personal friends.

No transparency on wages etc- hr only there for management. A bad atmosphere/such high turn over of staff as result. You’re a number in here that is all.
Pros
Other staff members- support group. No pros
Cons
Everything

Terrible place. You are essesntially a cleaner, who work with some who have never even been to college
Technician (Former Employee) –  Ireland9 July 2018
Terrible management from managers who are much too young and think they know the system but they don't even understand who is allowed to sign you off your training. Clean, clean, clean change a few gloves, dilute some chemotherapy.
Pros
You get to go home when youre finished
Cons

Customer Service
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) –  Blackrock, County Dublin20 September 2017
Baxter Healthcare were a gold star top class healthcare company where I learned the 5 star gold standard in customer service and professional business practice. During my time here I learned multiple work systems, trained people, received a lot of training, worked as a team member, team manager, and as part of an over operational management structure , and supported sales and marketing. This company provided me the opportunity to travel and work with colleagues in the UK, and Europe.
Pros
Excellent pay and fringe benefits
Cons
Longer hours and work life balance

Low wage, people not very young and energetic
Systems Technician (Former Employee) –  Mayo Abbey, County Mayo5 September 2017
Low wage, people not very young and energetic. They really don't value the workforce and it is not a very fun place to work because of that. Not much effort put into anything by HR.

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
