Pleasant place to work
Product Builder (Former Employee) –  Galway4 July 2018
after being fully trained in all aspects in the production of medical device I was then requested to test completed devices for leaks . Problems arose in this section and I suggested ways to eliminate these problems which were implemented. The hardest part of the Job was having to stop work due to machine failure or other aspect beyond my control. I did not like idleness and often requested to assist others.
Pros
Relaxed non hurried workplace
Cons
Pressure to avoid human errors and to be absolutely perfect each time

Product Builder/ Assembly (Former Employee) –  Galway10 February 2018
If you want to work in a monotonous role and be well paid, this is ideal. Choice of shift times and occasional overtime. It is a role that is subjective in terms of personal suitability.
Pros
Generously discounted canteen, good pay and potential benefits.
Cons
Uncertain job security, ridiculously short break times, hit and miss management.

R&D (Former Employee) –  County Galway7 February 2018
My project in Boston Scientific involved Development of an anticalcification in vitro model to study the effect of a novel polyepoxide crosslinker on bovine pericardium. Calcification is one of the main mechanisms for valve tissue degradation in bioprosthetic heart valves in-vivo. Interestingly we managed to decrease the tissue calcification considerably.
Pros
Job experience within medical device production
