Good experience
As it was a good experience for myself as I am interested in working with animals, it was mostly office based which doesn’t interest me as much as a practical job would as I like to stay on my feet.

Really nice place to work but salary and job security not very good
Teagasc is an excellent place to work, with state of the art equipment and an excellent working atmosphere and very friendly co-workers. The hours are flexible too and the environment is not overly pressurised. However, the basic salary is pretty poor and there is little to no benefits or perks. Also, if you are employed on a medium to long term contract there is no guarantee of renewal; with very little job security given.

Very easy going place to work personal as a lab assistant. Colleagues made it all the easier. Consists mostly of students on PhD’s. Found it very easy to work within the workplace.

Great place to work. Tough and competitive environment, pity the long term career prospects are so few and far between and for only the chosen few. Great for CV.

Cultural exchange at work
There is a high level of research. There are greats laboratories very well equipped, but the best thing about this company is the work environment: Everyone wants to make you feel as comfortable as possible. There are a lot of PhD students from different nationalities and they want that all of them feel like at home.
Pros
Two breaks
Cons
The way to arrive there.

productive and challenging
I genuinely enjoyed my placement and the opportunity to learn more about the scientific techniques your company is involved in.
This work placement opportunity taught me a lot about new analytical techniques that can be applied in numerous research laboratories and it has also broadened my understanding of real-life applications

I really appreciated how supportive and friendly you and your staff were. From your organization, I learned how to carry out extraction following a designated (SOP) on products that are not ready to be injected into a system. Also one of the newest things for me to experience was the solid phase extraction technique (SPE). The placement really helped me to decide on my future career.
Pros
analytical experience
Cons
long hours

productive and strict
I have worked for Teagasc food research as an analyst of food samples that comes from local county councils. as a student in work placement i was given limited roles at the beginning of the placement. but as i developed more knowledge I was permitted to participate more and get involved in all different aspects within the company. except validation and accreditation work.

I took my work placement very serious because it counts towards my final year of my degree.

During my 6 months work-placement I have gained plenty of new analytical techniques and I became more capable of handling difficult laboratory applications.
Pros
long breaks

Productive
Typical day was using PowerSoft Login software to check if the data monitored on the Dairy farm was recording. It was important to make sure electrical energy usage was recorded every 15 minutes from the farm that the meters were installed on. Reducing Electrical energy usage on the Dairy Farm was the aim. I learned in great detail how to save energy usage on dairy Farms in Ireland. The Hardest part of the job was working from the office all the time and not being able to see what kind of system the farmer had, which made it difficult to try and make savings by just an imagine created in my head. The most enjoyable part of the job was producing the savings which can be made, produced from the Excel model I created.
