Shocking
Operator (Former Employee) –  Shannon, County Clare11 April 2019
This is company that has no interest in you as a employee. your a contract worker with no rites or job security.
You work for a recruitment agency who do not have your best interests they are making money off your graft.
Training is very poor bullying is so bad and no chance of full time in this company.you work shifts no proper shift allowance.
No sick pay if your out for day on sick leave want doctors cert .
Would advise stay away

Nothing

Toxic working environment
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Shannon, County Clare21 August 2018
HR non-existent and the function of same is basically non existent. Toxic working environment with little or no considerarion given to employees.

Management operate a cosy cartel at the top , do not challenge each other and never challenge the status quo.

Training development and progression non-existent

Operations staff on long term agency contracts

Poor shift allowance for unsociable working conditions

If you value your sanity and dignity avoid at all costs

A once reputable bluechip employer has shamefully regressed to an organisation that encourages bullying and harassment to meet unrealistic targets.

Attrition rate / Staff turnover at an all-time high speaks volumes of this company.
Pros
No redeeming Qualities to Mention
Cons
The list is endless

Technician (Former Employee) –  Shannon, County Clare20 May 2018
The materials being produced are fascinating. The Bistro is very good. Traffic in the morning is problematic!!!!! Large, heavy workload. They want to reinvent the wheel, constantly.

Productive/good working environment.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Clare, IRE21 November 2013
Although shift work was difficult to come to terms with initially you do get used to it somewhat. As I am quite an active person and am/was involved with a local football team it was difficult to juggle both work and play. The working environment was generally good and my fellow co-workers were all very helpful and approachable. The hardest part of working in Element 6 was the long stretch of working hours. Being on your feet for 12 hours straight from 7 in the evening to 7 the next morning was difficult to motivate oneself to go through. Although at times it was difficult to come to terms with the shift work of days and evenings, everyone was well paid. The social aspects of the job were always very enjoyable.
Pros
Good work environment, good wage and benefits
Cons
Monotonous work, Long hours
