Fast paced and high pressure, very few companies doing what GM do at the same scale, so good experience to be had.That being said it very much depends on who you work for and what you do.Good benefits for permanent employees,but Opportunities to grow your career are scarce.
They employ too many graduates and apprentice, of course, they will because the apprentice role's salary is funded by the Ireland government and then they hardly keep 30% of them for permanent roles. The company has a big name and history but inside it lacks to provide proper management of IT resources and you can be removed at any time because the management does not care about you. The company is a manufacturing company, and the structure is vertical, there are political issues between some teams, and some non-ireland teams try to impose without arguments way of resolving problems, trying to attach to the known, that limit the growth of the new technologies, which would make things better and easier.
Learning material and certifications
Low pay, don't expect a rise or even an average salary, No free coffee, no playing/resting area, no separate canteen as well, It does not even feel like an IT office, It seems like some government office
Fast paced requirement to deliver the products on daily bases to the UK and Germany. good plant to work in.. N
The company has work force of 1400 people. lots of opportunity to be promoted to different jobs with in the company and overseas plants. Training and education opportunity at the plant and overseas plants available. Visiting other plants around the world for training and new manufacturing practices. High standard of quality to all aspects of the company policy and procedures. People were treated with up most respect.
Decent place to work. Requires a lot of flexibility especially in terms of developing knowledge in many different areas. This is offset by a collabrative and helpful culture which utilizes various knowledge sharing techniques to upskill people from knowledge sharing sessions, to mentoring to designed and tailored training programs. Only downside is the salary/benefits and job security (contract).
Collabrative helpful and highly diverse workplace, Informal managment with easy to understand goals and aims, Delivery on targets is prioritised
No Job security, temporary employment, salary and benefits not optimal.
I saw a lot of Interns and Apprentice come and go.The permanent staff in limerick only makes up about half the workforce. Training and support is poor. It is not a good learning environment for the Interns and Apprentices.
If you are made permanent there are reasonable terms and conditions.
Apprentices and Interns worked longer hours than the permanent staff.
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
