Great learning and work involvement with demanding workload
Senior Supply Chain Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cork1 November 2018
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

EMEA HR Analyst - Associate Specialist (Current Employee) –  Dublin, D10 June 2015
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?
Pros
Carreer opportunities
Cons
Work externalization

Friendly environment, diligent workforce, great experience and knowledge present
Senior Technician, QC Bioassay (Former Employee) –  Cork, Ireland3 December 2012
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.
Pros
training, atmosphere, knowledge, experience gained
Cons
long hours, under-staffed at times, communication from upper management could have been better
