A Farse
N/A (Former Employee) –  Waterford9 July 2019
They won't make people full time and find loopholes in the law to offer alternative short contracts to accommodate this strategy.
They now give 7 month contracts to interns rather then employ people.
Massive turnover of staff and those that stay are out on stress. The companies answer is to blame employees and send them to a physiotherapist.
Pros
None
Cons
Just about everything

Previous GMP Experience Needed!
Business Planner (Former Employee) –  Waterford city, County Waterford14 September 2018
If you don't have previous Pharma experience, then this is NOT the place for you.
The recruitment policy of hiring through Agencies means little chance of getting a full time contract. Most new hires are through an agency and don't get the benefits of "Full Time" contracts.
In house recruitment team & agencies paint a completely different picture of what it's like to work there compared to reality.
In reality, everyone is super stressed and see it as a chore to train new starters. You don't get all of the info. required to complete your job.
Almost all managers are more concerned with KPI's rather than on-boarding new starters. My manager avoided one-to-one contact which meant zero relationship with him and no hope of a contract extension.
Do NOT leave a full time contract for here, no matter what they promise! Having left a permanent 20 year job on the promise that the "grass was greener", this soon became evident it wasn't.
The people you work with are all top quality & will help out when they can. Never had an issue with anyone not in management.
I've never witnessed a group of workers so stressed / scared to make a mistake, for fear of serious reprimand / sacking.
Pros
People, facilities, canteen
Cons
Lack of mentoring, most managers concerned with KPI's rather than developing people

Fast paced new labs

Excellent location for gaining a variety of experience.

Very fast paced environment, that did not cater very well when troubleshooting issues arose. Sometimes deadlines were created without realistic expectations realised.

Overtime mandatory.
Pros
Many holidays and good benefits

Long hours, lackluster guidance

Sanofi Ireland Waterford, (formerly Genzyme Ireland Ltd), is a great place to work, the area of the business in which I was employed was the site CAPEX projects function which is a positively challenging area working to schedules and timelines with both cross-functional teams and project management team and of course vendors.

No bonus structure or health care foe contractors
