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.
