Toxic culture and getting worse
Scientist (Current Employee) –  Castletroy, County Limerick23 December 2019
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

PROs
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

CONs
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
