If you are married or have kids its a good place to earn a consistant wage with great benefits if you dont mind shift work. Not suitable for someone just finished school. Ideal for people late 20s onwards.
Negative for me was doing shift work as 12hrdays/nights can take its toll on the body both physically and mentally, that is the only concern, other than that its an excellent working environment if you keep the head down and do your work

Great company to work for, but unfortunately contract expires on December 2016. With the company recently having been forced into a number of redundancies, there doesn't seem to be a chance of an extension.
Pros
Great company ethos and atmosphere shared amongst all members of staff
Cons
None

The place is quality driven, people are very nice. One minus is that because it is a huge company HR is not very well organised. When you are new to the place you might wait for your login and training a long time, even two weeks.

Worked for stiefel a gsk company in Sligo. Only stayed there 4 weeks... Staff were unfriendly and cold. And management was disgraceful. Never knew who was in charge or who I went to with a problem.
Always felt like a few members of staff were always "out to get you"
Pros
great food in canteen
Cons
too many to write
