Demanding roles, tasked with developing and improving R&D product design. Tight schedules and availing of Agile project planning strategy. Not enough resources to manage workload. Systems improvements and IT infrastructure requirements need to be developed further. Quality and Documentation generation always demand effort.
Great Atmosphere, good teamwork
Long hours - Chaotic schedule - Multiple project assignments
The RCI site has a lot of potential and there are many great employees but serious problems exist at a management and HR level. Problems are swept under the rug causing morale to suffer. A few changes within Senior management and HR department would make a big difference
Many managers have low expectations of staff and it is possible to get by with minimum effort. More emphasis is placed on social activities than actual work. This might be considered a Pro by some.
Pension scheme is good
High staff turnover
Strong distrust between staff and HR
Lack of genuine career development
Office politics out of control
Hard work is rarely valued or rewarded
A lot of the work is not true R&D
Great opportunities to participate in many projects and develop. A lot of change/projects going on which makes the environment difficult. Many corporate decisions made globally do not allow for any local involvement or influence.
Good pay and benefits
A little too many changes going on at the same time
My work for this company was for 1 week as part of my transition year course in secondary school. Didn't actually work for this company, I believe it to be relevant to put on a CV as it gave me experience in different working environments.
Have been a Manager in a Medical Device manufacturing environment for the last 10 years. In this time have learned much about working in a tightly controlled GMP-compliant environment, supervising & motivating large groups of people & interacting with Senior management up to the highest level in the organisation. The business has successfully achieved all its key Operational goals for the last 4 years.
