I knew I did not have the skill set for the job, was employed by them- tedious with full medical. The culture was to American for me, the Management were some, not nice at all. Salary was not an issue.
My time at MSD was a pleasure. They are a very well developed company who while expecting a lot from their employees, reward them well. The management are very helpful, especially to interns and new staff.
Great place to work if you are out to learn and self learn fast, not suited to those who need time to settle in or be trained into the job.
Expectancy by all managment is for employees to tackle into all types of workload even outside their job description and vey little support is given by management.
Its about time the culture of MSD changes and the company adopts modern work practices, work hours are long and there is an over dependence to be present on site rather that work remotely - little focus on worklife balances
Overall great company and great experience working with a fantastic team.
Good work life balance
Good working environment
Open and transparent
High energy and large appetite for excellence.
Appreciated the autonomy.
Unfortunately plant closed and I was made redundant. Interested in similar roles within warehouse.
Pharmaceuticals company. Good safety record. Continuous improvement program. Tier daily meetings. Social club. Shift work.
MSD was a very good company.
Only disappointment was that Rathdrum was not part of there plans going forward
company was very well managed and always very good to employees in relation to time management,family issues.
It's a great company, with very good benefits, fantastic sites and locations made for its employees, flexible and compromised with health.
I've made some really good friends, specially in Ireland.
I've learned every day something new - work and life lessons; they, my colleagues, are the ones that make this company special and what it is.
I've grown personally and professionally, what else can you say?
There was a friendly atmosphere from day 01. It was possible to learn and gain experience/skills from some of the most knowledgeable scientific minds in Cork. All teams worked for a common goal, to achieve milestones and celebrate them together. The work-life balance was there to see all the time. Team building days were encouraged and expected. Christmas parties were well attended. Cross-training was widespread across the site so skills were widely transferable and training was constantly supplied. Requests for training items were always granted. Training on lean manufacturing, 6-sigma, Trackwise was constantly encouraged and well executed.
