Poor management team from the top level. Should move on and let more ambitious people bring the company forward. Advancement is whether or not you are liked in this place. Staff come here to gain experience and move on quickly. Not a pleasant environment. HR Manager needs to visit other companies to maybe get an insight into how to treat people with respect.
Pros
Nice location
Cons
Poor wages and no respect for staff

In Eurofins there is no respect for science and no respect for people working there. Culture of blaming and backstabbing. Employees are encouraged to spy on each other and report negative things.
Blaming and mobbing from the managers, that are incompetent and unprofessional.

Unfortunately I have experienced working for Eurofins. It was one of the hardest places to work in due to horrific management, poor pay for the workload given, favouritism and huge rotation of employees. Staying late was expected along with dealing with people with attitudes due to personal problems not related to work. On the plus side colleagues were always willing to give a helping hand if there was difficulty.

I have heard plenty of times about terrible workplaces in which team leaders are incompetent and dump their problems and responsabilities to the analysts, but I did not realize how this could be true until I started working for Eurofins. The training was so poor when I started that it lead to issues for most people. Now finally they have a new efficient training session!!!
I don't know basing on what the team leaders are chosen to perform their job, but the things that they lack are just the ability of manage a team,handle hardships work and answer the scientific questions!

Lack of organization and order is something you experience everyday, but also in this case it is analysts' fault! Most colleagues are so helpful and nice, but everyone is so stressed and overwhelmed by this environment and the incompetence of the team leaders.

I recommend this place just to experience lots of techniques and some psychological torture.

PS bullying from team leaders is part of the package .

Top management were decent people. You do get to use company van at the weekends. Other drivers in Dublin were sound. Time off and work life balance was good. Good bonus also.
Pros
A good job.
Cons
My route changed and the hours

Disrespectful senior management.. a known problem by everyone throughout the company yet nothing is done about it.
Always have to stay late - not asked- there's no choice - working Saturdays increased without consulting staff - pay is well below industry norm
Pros
Colleagues
Cons
Everything else...

Really angry at myself that I accepted their offer.
A lot was promised and never delivered.

Lower salary than similar companies.

You are regulary expected to work extra, the workload is sometimes just extreme.

But the worst of this place is the management culture (or the lack of it). It's a problem of small provincional company growing out of their league, being taken over by huge a corporation. Flags outside change, but the managers don't and you have to work under quite unprofesssional people with issues... Something that you wouldn't expect from international company.

Borderline mobbing is something that you experience very often. Either to other employees or yourself, all depend on the mood of the manager. Haven't heard about any other place that will allow manager to press so hard that some people will cry and need a day off...

Huge rotation of employees shows how toxic this place is.

They will refuse to give you any official references, but if they dislike you, you can be sure that it will be very hard to find another job in the industry.
Pros
Variety of techniques used, good experience
Cons
Bad management and toxic work environment

This is a good company to start your career after college. You will learn laboratory practice and how to work in an accredited testing laboratory. You will also get trained in standard testing methods for food and water. Saying that, the methods are basic and soon become quite repetitive and will not benefit career advancement in the medium/long term. Best advice is to learn what there is to be learned and move on asap!
Pros
Well run, good work/life balance
Cons
Salary, few career development opportunities

learned to utilize and compare different compendia on daily basis, ethical and professional environment, calibrate instruments, perform routine maintenance and troubleshooting to measure instrument variations to determine accuracy and precision, the most difficult part of the job was to search for samples to be tested in the lims system which was time consuming, then search for the relevant compendia for instructions on how to carry out the analysis
Pros
teamwork and independent judgement to ensure organization goals are met
Cons
time consuming due to the nature of the sample, sharing of instruments was quite a bottleneck that at times, required working after hours or on weekends to complete the projects

Don't expect to have a good salary, good worklife or an enjoyable career. It's a job. At least the people you work closely with are nice. The nights out can be fun.

Very busy your task are one after another no time to spare, you can learn a lot in very short space of time. The management team have always high expectations from all the staff their are tough but fair. Co-workers are grate bunch of people really fun to work together in the evening. Worse part of the job are hours, not family friendly.
Pros
