Extremely sexist senior management
Pre analytics (Former Employee) –  Dublin, sandyford11 May 2019
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

Very poor management culture
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Dungarvan, County Waterford8 November 2018
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

A company to start your career
Technician (Former Employee) –  Cork5 November 2018
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

prepare samples for analysis, perform microwave digestion, analyze samples, process data and write reports
Senior chemist (Former Employee) –  Pensylvania15 May 2018
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

It's a job.
Laboratory Technician 2 (Current Employee) –  Shandon, Dungarvan3 December 2017
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.

Verry busy but fun place to work

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.
