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.
Pros
Learning material and certifications
Cons
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

Good place to work with decent opportunities. Need to work hard and long hours, and be available to participate in US timed meetings. Minimal travel for most positions.

Can’t work out what GM is doing in Ireland . They are not building for the future too many interns and apprentices. They are like a car stuck in neutral since they sold Opel.
Pros
Ok benefits if you are permanent.
Cons
Future uncertain

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).
Pros
Collabrative helpful and highly diverse workplace, Informal managment with easy to understand goals and aims, Delivery on targets is prioritised
Cons
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.
Pros
If you are made permanent there are reasonable terms and conditions.
Cons
Apprentices and Interns worked longer hours than the permanent staff.
